January 2–April 4, 2020

Invisible City: Philadelphia and the Vernacular Avant-garde highlights Philadelphia’s significant contributions to visual, literary, and musical culture between 1956 and 1976. An interdisciplinary exploration that is centered at University of the Arts across three venues––Rosenwald–Wolf Gallery, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, and Gershman Hall––as well as the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the project invites audiences to envision Philadelphia as “a city of firsts,” whose accomplishments include the first Pop Art exhibitions, innovations in architecture and urban planning, the country’s first rock music and The Philly Sound, and a substantial post-war growth of art schools.
