Partners and Son presents Anuj Shrestha’s Both/And

Partners and Son is thrilled to present Both/And, an exhibition of prints by Anuj Shrestha, curated by Sacred Prism. The exhibition collects images from his most recent book, Both/And, alongside earlier works.

618 S 6th St, Philadelphia, PA 19147
March 10 – April 23
Opening Reception March 10, 6–9 pm

In Both/And, Shrestha explores conceptual echoes between images which are paired by their formal symmetries. With no text aside from their titles, these works rely on the fundamental relationship in comics between one panel and the next. Despite the precision and clarity of the images, their combination as comics creates a tension that we can only attempt to resolve by tracing the connections between them. This pursuit of conceptual abstraction through rigorous attention to visual detail is an underlying feature of all his work.

Pentimenti Gallery is thrilled to present Endless Illusions, a two-person show by Kate Bonner and Anna Wehrwein.

Endless Illusions calls attention to the visual texture qualities that are immediately perceived, but where work of opposite ends of the spectrum meets. The artworks selected were based on the following principles of art making: line, layers, movement, and the unique use of color. While sharing common values, the use of different mediums dictates the outcome of the works.

FJORD announces next exhibition, Before The DJ Was Sound, And She Played It

A solo project by artist Petra Floyd

1720 N 5th St, Philadelphia, PA 19122
March 11th – April 22, 2023
Opening reception Saturday, March 11th, 6-9pm

Before the DJ Was Sound, and She Played It, is a constellation of three interdisciplinary projects: Five Factors 3, Electric Boogie Revolution, and Kalimbrrd. Exhibited together, these sculptural installations are explicit invitations to experience sound and movement as inherited technologies for orienting ourselves in unknowable space/times. Kalimbrrd features handmade, amplified thumb pianos (kalimbas) and noisemakers for viewers to play and reshape the exhibition’s soundscape. Electric Boogie Revolution asks viewers to perform a timewarped “Electric Slide” from audio instructions; if viewers choose to dance, a visual score will emerge in the sand under their feet. Kalimbrrd and Electric Boogie Revolution are nestled within and anchored by Five Factors 3, a five-channel televisual and furniture installation featuring video of Naeem Martinez White, a local Pittsburgh visual and sonic artist, and myself communicating across different spaces and times (Pittsburgh and New Mexico) with acoustic and kinetic gestures.
