August 6, 2017, by Roberta

The small group exhibit, Jarring, creates a contemplative space to memorialize victims of racial hate crimes and to remember our shared humanity. Like great monuments in the public realm the works in this exhibition are accessible to all and valuable as history-telling by artists who care about what history is told.

August 3, 2017, by Mark Arehart

A new exhibition celebrating an African American artist collective opens at the Delaware Contemporary this August. In 1965, a group of artists in New York City came together for a month-long exhibition called Spiral. The group asked questions about what it's like to be a Black artist in America. Delaware Contemporary Curator Katherine Page said the museum’s new show Spiral, Recoil continues to ask those questions.

2017, Sister Spaceship by Jen Nugent

Sister Spaceship was recently curated into an exhibition at the Delaware Contemporary entitled “Show The People What They’ve Won.” S.S. shares the show with another Philadelphia-based artist (and friend), Jenny Drumgoole. Although their work is quite different, the sense of play and/or playfulness is so complimentary it practically bounces off the walls.
