NET Nights at Moore - Meet Ryan Humphrey

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

On Friday, May 29 The Galleries featured New York-based artist RYAN HUMPHREY for the first official NET Nights at Moore program. Ryan gave an illustrated lecture about his current body of work and how he got to where he is today - featured in the 2009 Queens International 4 exhibition and appearing on season one of Bravo's Top Design in 2007.

Known for his paintings, sculptures, installation and performances that riff on masculinity and Americana, the program was held in conjunction with Fast Forward, his exhibition of over 30 BMX bikes, 3 versions of Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel (1913) and a massive rug wrapping the walls of the gallery space created with the help of designer Todd Oldham, that traveled to the Galleries from the Queens Museum.

The installation was "artfully" put to use by Ryan along with 80's BMX pro Dizz Hicks, and select local pro-level BMXers. Check out the video!

Who we are

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

NET Nights began with the question, how do we engage Philadelphia's emerging artists and art and design students as active participants in conversations about contemporary art practice while helping them to connect and network with peers, business professionals and art and design professionals?

This question, along with statistics that the majority of graduates from local art and design colleges leave Philadelphia to pursue artistic endeavors in other cities such as New York City, Chicago and L.A. were the driving force behind the creation of NET Nights at Moore.

Since the launch of NET Nights in June 2009, the program has amassed a following of students from various disciplines who attend or have recently graduated from colleges across the area - Tyler School of Art, University of Pennsylvania, University of the Arts, Drexel University and Philadephia University. A large number of emerging and established visual artists, curators, performance artists, writers along with professionals from arts organizations and businesses.
