Not My Outside World

Friday October 10th: 6:00PM - 8:00PM
Ticket Price: Free

A conversation on abstraction and social imagination with psychylustro curator Elizabeth Thomas and artist and writer Douglas Ashford, Associate Professor at Cooper Union and former member of Group Material.

psychylustro, a collaboration between artist Katharina Grosse and the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, is an episodic painting of abstract fields of color along the Northeast Rail Corridor’s natural and built environment. Conceived as a large-scale urban earthwork that will transform over time as the elements gradually reclaim the space, psychylustro has both re-focused and broadened conversation about the future of this heavily trafficked but disconsidered passageway through Philadelphia.

psychylustro is supported by The Pew Center for Arts + Heritage, National Endowment for the Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Fierce Advocacy Fund, PTS Foundation, AT&T, Philadelphia Zoo, Joe and Jane Goldblum, David and Helen Pudlin, halfGenius, The Beneficial Foundation and the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation.
