Torchia to Curate MFA Thesis Exhibition

Richard Torchia has exhibited internationally in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Norwich School of Art and Design in the UK and locally at the Eastern State Penitentiary, The Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Institute of Contemporary Art. He received a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grant in 1999 and was awarded a Pew Fellowship for photography in 1994. He is director of Arcadia University Art Gallery. His work investigates the state of suspension between seeing and knowing and moves the viewer through progressive stages, as Aristotle suggested, "from perplexities close at hand to perplexities about the origins of all that is."
