PHILADELPHIA, PA.- Paradigm Gallery + Studio
is presenting TEN, a comprehensive, group exhibition curated in celebration of the gallerys tenth anniversary. TEN features the work of over 120 artists, who have presented at Paradigm over the last 10 years. The work included in the exhibition spans across mediums, featuring painting, drawing, sculpture, fibers, craft, mixed media and everything in between. To mark this exciting milestone, a majority of the artists have created new work specifically for this exhibition. TEN is on view through March 21, 2020. The exhibition is on view by appointment only.
Over the last decade, the award-winning Paradigm Gallery has become internationally known as a Philadelphia mainstay. Locals and visitors alike have come to cherish the vision of powerhouse duo, Jason Chen and Sara McCorriston. Not only known for curating exciting and unique group exhibitions, the Paradigm team has helped emerging artists in their roster grow to international prominence. They have placed works in significant public and private collections like Villa Schöningen in Berlin and The Asian Cultural Council Taiwan Foundation in Taipei. Nationally, they have placed over 90 public murals, in part through their HAHAxParadigm collaborative programming, working with local communities in helping build a stronger U.S. public arts program. Their strong presence in Queen Village has significantly impacted the neighborhood. With new galleries popping up next door every day, the area has become a must-see art destination in Philadelphia.
On the subject of their anniversary, McCorriston says, Since 2010, weve grown 4 times the size of what our original space was. Its proof that the Philadelphia art scene is so supportive and that our diverse program of New Contemporary artists resonates with the community. Weve curated TEN to reinforce what weve been doing over the last ten years and our 2020 program not only continues that mission, but highlights how expansive Paradigms exhibitions can be.
TEN is a celebration of the last ten years and a preview of whats to come. Some highlights from the exhibition include works by artists from Paradigms first year like Brad Haubrich and Noségo, portraits of Chen and McCorriston by Emily Smith, and a large-scale exquisite corpse. Introduced in 1925 by Surrealists, an exquisite corpse brings together a group of artists in collaborative play, to create a single work of art. It pushes the boundaries of a traditional art form in a fun, untethered way. Over the course of the month leading up to the exhibition, around a third of the participating artists will contribute to the piece as a visual reminder of Paradigms ever-growing community.
