Ghost in the Machine: Closing Reception and Performance

  • PAFA 118 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA, 19102 United States (map)

Free Event: The Alumni Gallery at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts presents the works of David Dempewolf, Alexandria Douziech, Tyler Kline, and Ashley Wick in GHOST IN THE MACHINE: Video in the Realm of Objects. 

Subjective worlds of experience, love stories, wandering thoughts, and ruminations on the self and civilization manifest as moving images and moving paintings. Like apparitions, these active, illuminated images haunt the sculpture and installation they live inside or project onto. While the works diverge in their content, they share in their use of video as sculptural and spatial effect, recalling an important work in PAFA’s museum collection - David Lynch’s Six Figures Getting Sick.

Join us for the closing reception of Ghost in the Machine: Video in the Realm of Objects and a live performance.

David Dempewolf will stage a live video performance with Philadelphia-based experimental musician Spencer Carrow at 3:00 PM.
