Tadashi Moriyama (MFA '06) in Exhibition at Luis de Jesus LA, Opening May 22, 5pm

Tadashi Moriyama

Tadashi Moriyama (MFA '06) will exhibit work at Luis de Jesus Los Angeles in a show titled Group Show. The exhibit opens Saturday May 22 at 5pm. The other participating artists are Christopher Barnard, Margie Livingston, Christopher Russell, Jason Sherry, and William Staples. The exhibition runs concurrent with Lael Corbin: "Greetings from Earth", in the main gallery.

Tadashi Moriyama was born in Tokyo and raised in Japan and the United States. Moriyama attended Tyler School of Art (BA 2003) and the University of Pennsylvania (MFA 2006). His intricately detailed aerial views of post-apocalyptic landscapes explore themes of creation and subsequent collapse of cities, memories, space and time, where technology and digital media function as manipulators and instigators of fear, death and hopeful renewal. Inspired and influenced by Buddhist and Hindu miniature painting, Italian Renaissance painting, as well as personal experiences, his overcrowded, over-systematized metropolises sprout consumptive organs, and breeding buildings evolve into chaotic knots of life-sustaining connective tissue. This will be Tadashi’s first exhibition with Luis De Jesus Los Angeles. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

Opening Reception: May 22, 5:00 - 8:00pm
Exhibition Dates: May 22 - June 26, 2010

Joshua Mosley (MFA Professor of Animation and Acting Chair) Has Work Exhibited at Philadelphia Art Museum

Joshua Mosley, International (Animation Still), 2010

Live Cinema/Histories in Motion presents a program of animated films by three young artists for whom the moving image and its cinematic qualities have become the prevailing form of expression. Philadelphia-based Jennifer Levonian and Joshua Mosley, along with Martha Colburn, originally from Pennsylvania and based in New York and Amsterdam, employ animation to examine both personal and communal experience. Combining paper cut-outs, collages, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures with stop-action techniques and computer technology, their animated films employ cinematic devices to create stories that reflect a range of experience, from daily interaction to ideological debates. Each artist’s animation and accompanying artworks will be on view for approximately one month.

Joshua Mosley’s International (2010) focuses on two historical figures, the American builder and philanthropist George Brown and Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek. Using photographs of pivotal places in the lives of the two protagonists, Mosley constructs an imaginary conversation that identifies Brown and Hayek’s perspectives on how a nation’s economic and social order should ideally evolve. International will be on view June 29 – July 25, 2010, together with a sculpture installation by Mosley.

Joshua will also give an artist's talk on Friday, July 9 called In Dialogue: Joshua Mosley and Adelina Vlas.

Exhibition Dates:
June 29 - July 25, 2010
Artist Talk: 6:30pm, Friday, July 9, 2010, Van Pelt Auditorium

Philadelphia Art Museum
