Siobhan McBride (MFA '05) in Exhibit at Mount Airy Contemporary Artists Space, Opening Friday, November 6, 6 - 9pm

Siobhan McBride, Moody House

Siobhan McBride (MFA '05) will have work in the exhibit titled On the Fringe of Nature at the Mount Airy Contemporary Artists Space in Philadelphia. She will show with artists Amy Chan and John Slaby.

All three artists in this show engage in work that inhabits the region where human habitation intermingles with the natural environment - a porous, permeable border where neither civilization nor nature remains pristine, and cross-pollination can create surprises. In Siobhan McBride's work, solitary warehouses and vaguely habitable structures squat under darkened skies that hang low over the landscape; weeds and bracken push up through the margins between concrete, brick and debris. McBride is influenced by urban domestic living and the industrial debris of Red Hook, Brooklyn. She draws from various source material for her content - photographs (both taken and scavenged), and her own filtered impressions of everyday experiences moving within the urban landscape.

Opening Reception: Friday, November 6th, 6:00 to 9:00pm
