Opening Reception Sat. June 24 6 - 9pm
iMPeRFeCT Gallery invites you to the Opening Reception for our new exhibitions. "FEVERED DREAMS, FRACTURED TIMES", in the main room, the work of MARK JASON WESTON, a Jamaican-born collage artist and writer who lives and works in Philadelphia. His work is a cross-examination of himself, his sexuality, his Jamaican roots, fashion, architecture, and the cultural influence post-colonial English culture. The works in this exhibit were curated by photographer Shawn Theodore.
We also welcome the Village of Arts & Humanities's Creative Impact Studios, the Village's flagship art education, advocacy and leadership youth program, with the exhibition "Where I Live, Where I Learn, North Philadelphia", curated by Shawn Theodore in our new project space THe GReaT GLaSS eLeVaToR.
The selected students MALCOLM PALMER, ZAHNAE SWAIN, TYLER SIMPSO, KAYLA COFIELD and ISRAEL JOYNES will display images they created during their internships.
THe BaCKRooM has papier mache sculpture by ROSE BRADLEY, a colorful, self taught local artist, who works mostly in her kitchen to generate symbolic portraits of imagined personalities that inhabit what is maybe her own Germantown.
The ReDRooM features the installation "American Standard" by REPHAEL EPSTEIN, a Brooklyn born artist who resides in Philadelphia and makes installations and sculptures. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language , Epstein wants to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil poetic images that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.
