A Friend of a Friend:
Opens February 1
In the Gallery (formerly known as the Garage),
Cherry Street Pier is pleased to present A Friend of a Friend, a group exhibition with work from Acori Honzo, Oluwafemi, Sharif Pendleton, Yolanda Wisher, Shanel Edwards, Erlin Geffrard, Kara Hinson and Scott Owens. A Friend of a Friend showcases the work of four Cherry Street Pier resident artists paired with four guest Philadelphia artists and examines perspectives on Black identity through a historical and contemporary context.
The title, A Friend of a Friend, references not only the curatorial process, but also the password phrase "a friend of a friend sent me," used by those traveling alone to indicate that they were sent by the Underground Railroad network.
The exhibition opens on Friday, February 1st with an opening reception with the artists from 6 to 8 pm.
