    Philadelphia Art Alliance at University of the Arts is pleased to present the first Philadelphia exhibition of works by Nyeema Morgan. Morgan’s work will be on view August 18-October 8, 2021.

    Morgan’s meticulous drawings, sculptures and installations employ non-identical repetition and unexpected juxtaposition to prompt reflection on the mechanics of representation and its political/social underpinnings and consequences.

    For the series Like It Is, Morgan begins by pulling texts from the library containing the word “extraordinary” in their titles. Upon finding a book cover page presenting significant connotative and typographic interest, Morgan Xeroxes it in various positions. These replications serve as references for 50 by 38-inch graphite drawings that also incorporate incidental traces of the studio environment (shadows of the artist’s shoulder, a lamp, etc.). They are then later used as collage source material.

    No ticket information is available for this event.
