Current Exhibit

The Expanded Caribbean:

The Expanded Caribbean: Contemporary Photography at the Crossroads features work by 16 artists with projects based in several different nations and communities neighboring the Caribbean Sea.  The exhibition brings together images that document, interrogate, challenge, and otherwise engage the meaning of place in an area with a rich history as a target of exploration and conquest, voluntary and forced migration, trade, travel, and tourism. Responding variously to cultural, historical, mythological, and personal aspects the region, artists initiate dialogues about how events of the past inform contemporary experience in a continually shifting and evolving environment.

 The exhibition is accompanied by a quality print and electronic catalog that includes images of all works as well as contextual scholarly essays by Dr. Mimi Sheller, Professor of Sociology at Drexel University, and Dr. Susanna W. Gold, Curator. This publication was supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

Where the Artists Are (in their studios)

This winter the Pearlstein will show the work of 3 artists. Sculpture by Lewis Colburn, drawings and paintings by Anda Dubinskis, & drawings by Mark Stockton.

By examining several years of each artists’ work the show will explore the intellectual and technical characteristics that distinguish their daily working routines; what draws them into in their studios, excites them, and keeps them there. Studio work is how artists spend their days. This show looks at three artists and how their experiments, frustrations, discoveries and digressions eventually grow into cohesive bodies of work.
