Vox Populi commemorates three decades of artistic experimentation, community, and change through a new group exhibition and myriad public programs, featuring an intergenerational selection of current and former members of the art collective. Grasping 30 years of practice, Vox Populi celebrates its anniversary with the special exhibition Just In Time: 30 Years of Collective Practice and related performances, workshops, conversations and a forthcoming publication. The exhibition and programs reiterate Vox Populi’s collective spirit while honoring its inception in 1988 as a grassroots organization for emerging artists in Philadelphia.

For Just in Time, Vox Populi has refreshed its walls, cleaned its floors and installed five new projects in its galleries. Chosen from an open call issued to the collective’s current and former members, and selected by guest jurors Jacque Liu (artist and Vox alum) and Li Sumpter (artist), Vox Populi has commissioned five collaborative projects that are each inspired by the creative and synergetic effects of intergenerationality. The exhibition reflects on the organization’s past, present and future, and brings the collective’s enduring cultural principles into focus.

Just In Time celebrates the present moment: creating a flexible space that allows for unlikely artistic collaboration, development and innovation alike. The exhibition equally recognizes the organization’s past: cherishing past accomplishments and highlighting various voices from its ever-revolving membership. Lastly, it probes the future of collectivity: welcoming a dynamic model of dialogue and impulses beyond organizational boundaries into the larger ecosystem of contemporary art.
