An integral part of the John B. Hurford '60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery (CFG) is the principal venue for the Haverford College Exhibitions Program.
An Alarming Specificity engages with human bodies which do not align with a fictional norm grounded in white patriarchal hegemony. Curated by Aubree Penney, the exhibition examines ways artists subvert the predominance of white, heterosexual, cis-male, non-disabled bodies as the default of humanity.
A new exhibit in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery explores the summer of 1976 in Philadelphia through a documentary created by the 2019 Summer Doculab Fellows.
January 24 – March 6, 2020: The Bicentennial in Philadelphia laid bare some of the most pressing questions of America’s national identity. Five Haverford and Bryn Mawr College students collaborated with poet Thomas Devaney and Greenhouse Media to explore this surreal moment in history through an experimental documentary film. Bicentennial City continues that project as an interactive installation with multi-channel projections, sculptures, and Bicentennial ephemera, seeking to explore the many roles myth and memory play in the psyche of a city.
The newest installation in the Cantor Fitzgerald Gallery is an interactive, campus-wide experience that reimagines traditional conceptions of thinking about institutional spaces.
The award connects the College’s Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, artist collective Slavs and Tatars, and Philadelphia nonprofits Twelve Gates Arts and the Council on American Islamic Relations for two years of planned artistic collaborations inspired by a 14th-century allegorical Uighur text.
This summer’s Doculab Fellows are staying close to home as they produce a documentary project about the 1976 American Bicentennial celebrations in Philadelphia.
