Temple Gallery at Tyler School of Art, Temple University

About the Exhibition

From early broadsheets to new electronic media, print has been not only the vehicle for news but the very arena in which information has been publicly debated. With the significant changes that have constellated around globalism—migrations of populations, differently developing economies, political shifts and confrontations—new means of informing, creating and mobilizing audiences have developed, and relationships of individual to information and consensus forms, such as history and its authority, have rapidly evolved. Projects by Thomas Kilpper, Carl Pope, Francesc Ruiz, Superflex, Swoon, Barthélémy Toguo, and YOUNG-HAE CHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES engage and expand the strategies and effects of public media. Most have been commissioned for this exhibition; installed in and around Temple Gallery, they generate new dynamics of exchange with innovative and reconfigured media platforms, rewritten histories and new imaginaries of place.

About Temple Gallery

Temple Gallery is an exhibition program founded in 1985 and based at Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Its mission is the exploration of emerging artistic practices and their interpretation. Relocated to the North Philadelphia campus of Temple University in 2009, the gallery presents innovative practices to a wide range of audiences and participants, connecting local critical debates to national and international conversations. The new base at Temple, with its history of service to the local community, provides additional context for the program’s exploration of diverse voices and perspectives, and its examination of evolving public ideas about the nature of art and its effects.
