Reception for Philadelphia Sculptors' exhibition "Catagenesis", fifteen site-specific installations at Globe Dye Works, a former textile dyeing facility in the Frankford neighborhood of north Philadelphia. Featuring Israeli artist Nivi Alroy.
Philadelphia Sculptors is sponsoring "Catagenesis", fifteen site-specific installations at Globe Dye Works, a sprawling former textile dyeing facility in the Frankford neighborhood of north Philadelphia. Seventeen artists from Canada, Israel, and the U.S. will respond to the building's manufacturing history and current state of transition by installing unexpected works in dormant industrial spaces. Israeli artist Nivi Alroy is one of the featured artists. Her installation will imitate a process of life generation and constant movement by using giant barrels that generate thread and a microscope as a life-creating sewing machine. Other works will be sited throughout the ground floor, allowing visitors to navigate through buildings that still retain their 19th Century industrial charm. A video showcasing Globe's history and current revival will be on view during the duration of the exhibition. "Catagenesis" will be open to the public on weekends from September 9 - October 21, 2012, from noon - 5 pm. An free public opening reception will take place on Sunday, September 9 from 2:00 -5:00 pm.. Globe Dye Works is located at 4500 Worth Street in Philadelphia. For more information: email@example.com.
