iMPeRFeCT Gallery is very proud to announce the exhibit of Henry Chalfant's photographs capturing many ephemeral, original art works that have long since vanished from NYC. Chalfant, the person internationally recognized as the leading chronicler of graffiti’s emergence as an art form, has done so in several media including films (Style Wars, From Mambo to Hip Hop) and books (Subway Art, Spray Can Art). These archives are one of the seminal documents of American popular culture in the late twentieth century; they have been exhibited in major American venues (OK Harris, Whitney Museum, Hirshhorn Museum, Bronx Museum to name a few) and abroad, in museums and galleries in The Netherlands, Paris, London, Venice, Japan and others. We are thrilled that he's bringing his work to Philly!
The mural installation "Into Wonderland" by noted Philadelphia painter Cavin Jones will be on view concurrently in the gallery’s ReDRooM (our project room). His lyrical and imaginative Wonderland series, includes drawings picturing Alice as a black woman among the place’s quirky characters. Jones work has been featured in many galleries and he has won a number of prestigious awards. His work is in the collections of Princeton University's Printmaking Dept., University Museum of Art, the City of Philadelphia's City Hall Portraits and others.
