Exhibition Dates: February 28 – March 21, 2020
Opening Reception: Friday, February 28, 2020 | 5:30 – 10:00PM
Paradigm Gallery + Studio is pleased to present TEN, a comprehensive, group exhibition curated in celebration of the gallery’s tenth anniversary. TEN features the work of over 125 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. Leading up to the exhibition, over 30 of the artists will contribute to an exquisite corpse, a collaborative group work, which will be unveiled at the public opening reception on February 28th from 5:30 – 10:00PM. TEN will be on view February 28 – March 21, 2020.
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, 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, we’ve grown 4 times the size of what our original space was. It’s proof that the Philadelphia art scene is so supportive and that our diverse program of New Contemporary artists resonates with the community. We’ve curated “TEN” to reinforce what we’ve been doing over the last ten years and our 2020 program not only continues that mission, but highlights how expansive Paradigm’s exhibitions can be.”
TEN is a celebration of the last ten years and a preview of what’s to come. Some highlights from the exhibition include works by artists from Paradigm’s 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 artform in a fun, untethered way. Throughout the course of the month leading up to the exhibition, over 30 of the participating artists will contribute to the piece as a visual reminder of Paradigm’s ever-growing community.
