Francesca Pfister (MFA '06) in Solo Exhibit at Burrison Gallery Opening January 11

Francesca Pfister will have a solo exhibition titled Snow Traces at the Burrison Gallery opening January 11.

Francesca practices a form of visual archeology. Working in photography, video and installation, she explores the physical world around her, looking for surfaces, objects and spaces that express human presence. Her main source of inspiration is the city, with its urban textures, permanent marks and ephemeral traces. In Snow Traces, she investigates a pedestrian’s experience of Philadelphia streets ­in the aftermath of a snowstorm.

After earning an Art History degree in Switzerland and a certificate in Museum Studies from NYU’s Graduate School of Arts and Science in New York, Pfister worked as a curatorial researcher and educator for museums in New York. She then studied photography at The University of The Arts in Philadelphia and the Centre Iris in Paris, before obtaining an MFA from Penn, where she currently teaches photography in the Fine Arts Department.
