Arnold Art Gallery
Featuring work by: Ilia Varcev

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 3, to Thu, Oct 27 2011

Bulgarian by birth, Czech educated, but Southern by the grace of God, Ilia Varcev is a photographer of record. Whether dizzying, bucket-crane architectural views of modern skyscrapers, agitated political rallies, exuberant public celebrations, intimate vignettes of his Eastern European homeland, or simply people on the street, Varcev’s photographs internalize reality, providing us a glimpse of structure and meaning in a world in flux. Recent forays into manipulation by the artist play off the veracity of his photographs.

Featuring work by: Zoe Strauss

: Thu, Oct 27, 7pm - 9pm

Zoe Strauss is a photo-based installation artist who uses Philadelphia as a primary setting and subject for her work. Strauss’s photographic work culminates in a yearly “Under I-95” show, which takes place beneath the Interstate highway in South Philadelphia. She displays her photographs on concrete pillars under the highway and sells photocopied prints of her work for $5 each. In 2002, she received a Seedling Award in photography from the Leeway Foundation. In 2005, she received a Pew Fellowship. In 2006, her work was included in the Whitney Biennial. Zoe Strauss was named a 2007 USA Gund Fellow and granted $50,000 by United States Artists, an arts advocacy foundation dedicated to the support and promotion of America's top living artists. Zoe Strauss is the author of America, published November 2008 by AMMO Books.

Zoe will discuss her project “Under I-95” and the preparation for her upcoming exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

This event is free and open to the public.
