NO MEAT IN TEAM is an exhibition featuring 40 artists graduating from the MFA programs at Tyler School of Art and the University of Pennsylvania in 2015. Organized and curated by a team of MFA candidates from both schools, this exhibition congregates two of Philadelphia’s most prominent academic programs in an effort to visualize the concerns common to both institutions. The title, No Meat in Team, plays with the collaborative nature of the project and the shared objective of both programs to come together in a productive way. This exhibition, initiated, organized and curated by students, signals a critical step made by both communities to begin actively addressing each other not simply as mutual residents of a city but as contemporaries working in the same field. 

Curated by: Natessa Amin, Filipe De Sousa, Andrew Negrey Joan Oh Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez, and Michael Taylor 

Organized by: Martin Blake, Alex Echevarria, Jacob C Hammes, Joan Oh, Chiara No, and Annie Zverina
