Current and Upcoming Shows

T-shirts with printed graphics are frequently a vehicle for promoting ideas, interests, and self-labeling. What happens when artists take on the T-Shirt as a way to explore the unique features of the Philadelphia cultural and physical landscape? How do we make use of the shirt as a frame for our favorite places, people, or historical moments? Second State Press invited artists to respond to the idea of the T-shirt as a platform for their work.

Artists include: Grimaldi Baez, Emilia Brintall, Chris Kline, Victoria Lagano, Leslie Mutchler / Jason Urban, José Ortiz-Pagán, Philadelphia Printworks, Scott Porcelli, and Joy O. Ude.

This show will open Thursday, December 13th in tandem with the SSP Annual Silent Auction + Party, and will be on view through February 2nd, 2019.
