Offering a different focus to current art Director of Fleisher/Ollman Gallery, Dr. Alex Baker will complement the exhibition with his presentation, “Gone Figurative: Contemporary Sculpture and the Human Form.” Asserting that sculpture has re-entered the vocabulary of contemporary art, Baker suggests that the proliferation of installation art may be beginning to subside as young artists return to traditional notions of sculpture, albeit in subversive ways. The public is invited to attend the free presentation at 1:30 PM and the opening reception, which follows from 3:15 – 5:30 PM. One student will be selected by Dr. Baker to receive the “Best in Show” award.
Moore College of Art and Design is located at 20th and the Parkway in Philadelphia. The exhibition will be open to the public from June 1 – July 20, 2013. Gallery hours during the exhibition: Monday-Friday at 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM, and Saturday 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM. The gallery is closed during all academic and regular holidays.
Additional support for this exhibition is provided by Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Tyler School of Art, The University of the Arts, and University of Pennsylvania.
