IMPerRFeCT Gallery in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia invites artists to submit original artworks to “Ephemeral Partner: Art about Human Relationship with the More-Than-Human World,” curated by Vivian Lehrer, co-founder of farm-and-arts sleepaway camp Eden Village Camp. Works should incorporate natural materials. All media will be considered, including painting, sculpture, performance, fiber, installation, mixed media, and new genres. The exhibit will run March 11 - April 8, 2023.
This show will feature work exploring the ways humans position ourselves within the rest of the natural world. From romantic and communal bonds to the micro- and macro-ecosystems that sustain us, relationships are the essence of our existence and our strongest catalysts. Because the pieces in this show highlight visual languages of partnership, they point to our vulnerable identity as part of nature, and encourage reverent ways of walking with each other and on this planet.
"Ephemeral Partner" invites artists to participate in IMPerRFeCT Gallery's mission of bringing a transformative voice to inspire change and rally community.
