June 3 – July 25, 2017
The Galleries at Moore
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

An exhibition of drawings by Social & Studio Practices faculty, alumni and current students. Building on the 2016 exhibition Drawing On and On which grew out of a live, one day drawing rally event, this exhibition will extend the life of the drawings on view by soliciting contributions via mail. In the long tradition of Mail Art, many objects have been compiled together from disparate networks of friends and strangers.

This exhibition showcases the diversity of work created by the artists and designers that teach at Moore College of Art & Design. The 2016 iteration of this tri-annual exhibition includes a curated selection of works in a wide range of media that examine elements of the fantastic, explore transformation and different state of consciousness, are dramatically impacted by their context, and inform and/or initiate social change.

The exhibition is curated by John Caperton, Jensen Bryan Curator, The Print Center (Philadelphia), and will be accompanied by a series of artist presentations that provide a forum for Moore faculty to discuss their practice and process or present their research and expertise. Faculty artists include Stefan Abrams, Julia Bunn, Alessandro Codagnone, Liz Collins, Elaine Erne, Robert Goodman, Rachael Gorchov, Alexis Granwell, Max Groff, David Guinn, Jay Haon, Paul Hubbard, Jeanne Jaffe, Anna Neighbor, Lynn Palewicz, Sheetal Prajapati, Theresa Rose, Julia Staples, Chad States, Daniel Tucker, Heather Ujiie, Kimberly Voigt.

NO ATLAS is produced by our 2015/16 SHIFT Residency artists. The unique nature of SHIFT Residency draws out unspoken challenges, and considerations in the lives of its participating artists, who dedicate a significant portion of their time towards supporting other artists. Reflecting possibilities for navigating otherness at the intersection of time, place, and identity, the work in NO ATLAS maps territories known and unknown, real and imagined, material and spectral, playing out each artist’s relationships to alterity. The group collectively examines modes of displacement, using video, sculpture, installation, and performance as tools for investigation into origins, cosmologies, pedagogies, and the shifting dimensions of interpersonal relationships.

All artwork and programming presented for NO ATLAS has been conceived of and created by the artists since they began the SHIFT Residency in August 2015.
