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.
