PINK IS A COLOR THAT FEELS LIKE LOVE Opening August 29

posted on August 15, 2018

Stamp Gallery presents Pink is a Color That Feels Like Love, guest curated by Philadelphia based independent curator Katy Scarlett.  The exhibition brings together three artists, Damien Davis, Brandon Dean, and Delano Dunn, whose work is deeply invested in the formal use of color paired with recognizable motifs in order to reflect on issues of representation. The artists address stereotypes related to race, gender, sexuality, and class, figuring color imbued with broader cultural meaning as a central subject in order to critique dominant paradigms.

 

Opening reception, open and free to the public: August 29, 6PM - 8PM.  Light refreshments will be served

 

Exhibition on view: August 29 - October 6

    Mission Statement

    The gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary art with an emphasis on the work of emerging and mid-career artists. The gallery supports contemporary art that is challenging and/or academically engaging and that addresses broad community and social issues. Through meaningful exhibitions and programming the gallery offers an outside-of-the-classroom experiential learning opportunity. The gallery space can be used as a laboratory for emerging artists and curators to experiment and work through their ideas, emphasizing the importance of the process to contemporary artistic practice. The gallery serves by providing exhibitions of social responsibility and artistic substance, as well as by offering an educational forum in which dialogue between artist and viewer and art and community is encouraged.
