Opening Reception and Artist Talk: September 7th, 6 - 8pm
PHILADELPHIA—InLiquid presents artists Nancy Agati, Emily Squires Levine and Laura Tabakman, Diane Marimow, and Michele Tremblay in a special exhibition, Constructing Organics, at Park Towne Place Museum District Residences South Tower. This exhibition brings together five artists (two working collaboratively, Levine and Tabakman) whose work mimics nature’s ways of organically creating patterns, textures, and forms while contemplating man’s use and interpretation thereof. Using sophisticated design processes and relying on their intuition as artists, these five women offer visions of beauty, construction, and reconstruction. This exhibition is also listed as an event with Design Philadelphia through their partnership with InLiquid.
Nancy Agati uses organic materials to create new sculptural structures that maintain their botanical origins. Emily Squires Levine and Laura Tabakman have created a collaborative site-specific installation that mimics forest life using manmade materials. Similarly, Michele Tremblay creates wall mounted sculptures from artificial materials that accurately recreate the forms of leaves and petals. Diane Marimow uses ceramics to create handmade gestural totems referencing the shapes and patterns of mollusks and shells.
In partnership with Aimco, InLiquid is curating rotating exhibitions and organizing engaging public programming at their mid-century modern complex, Park Towne Place, which offers upscale high-rise living in Center City. InLiquid is also helping to project manage Park Towne’s acquisition of new works for their permanent collection. The arts advisory relationship is part of a redevelopment initiative by Park Towne to become a vital member of the Benjamin Franklin Parkway cultural community.
InLiquid mobilizes and makes accessible the visual arts culture of the greater Philadelphia region in order to unite communities, establish wider audiences for artists and designers, facilitate the relationship between artists and collectors, and nurture the public’s appreciation of all forms of visual art.
