The Woodmere Annual (2018)
The Woodmere Annual is a juried exhibition of contemporary art in Philadelphia, now in its 77th year. Syd Carpenter, this year's juror, is a sculptor and professor of studio art at Swarthmore College. From over 600 artists who submitted work for consideration, Carpenter selected works by 76 artists whose practices references the land, the transience of the body, and movement through space. In this episode, we talk with Carpenter about her own work on view in the exhibition, and that of Barbara Bullock and Selma Burke. We also discuss themes and ideas with a representative group of artists in the show, including Douglas Herren, James Morton, Sophie Sanders, Cheryl Tracy, and Kukuli Velarde.
