Alumnus and Penn Professor Matt Neff (MFA '05) opens a show at the Print Center in Philadelphia, Apr 3rd

Neff reflects on the nature of medium in his work "Four of Us".
Alumnus and Penn Professor Matt Neff (MFA '05) will be opening a show at the Print Center in Philadelphia, Apr 3rd with prints from Terry Adkins portfolio made in collaboration with the Common Press.

Matt Neff's exhibition, Second Sightfeatures prints, photographs and sculptural works characterized by a complex layering of process, medium and concept and an experimental use of materials. The exhibition is curated by The Print Center’s Executive Director, Elizabeth Spungen.

Within Second Sight is a project space titled Second SITE, where Neff will be in residence. It serves as an evolving studio, exhibition, meeting, performance and research venue for interaction with artists, curators, writers and community members. Second SITE will change weekly. This immersive gallery experiment opens up the often impermeable barrier between viewing and making and is sure to result in interesting conversations and creations. Go to www.printcenter.org for information on Second SITE programing. 

In conjunction with Neff's exhibition, The Print Center will be showing Terry Adkins & The Common Press: 7th Ward.

Terry Adkins (1953–2014) created the portfolio The Philadelphia Negro Reconsidered in collaboration with The Common Press at the University of Pennsylvania, which is directed by Matt Neff. The portfolio was inspired by The Philadelphia Negro - W.E.B. Du Bois’ pioneering demographic study of Philadelphia’s original 7th Ward, the neighborhood in which The Print Center is located. The exhibition is supported by the Department of Fine Arts, School of Design, University of Pennsylvania.
