Yo Melbourne We’re from Philly!

21 Sep 2019 - 19 Oct 2019

Energised by his experiences working with Arts Project Australia during his time in Melbourne, shortly after his return to the States, curator and gallery director Alex Baker sought out artists from his hometown, Philadelphia, who work in disability studio programs for an exhibition he curated at Fleisher/Ollman in 2014.

Building on these relationships, Baker will present Yo Melbourne We’re from Philly! at Arts Project Australia, featuring artists selected from Philadelphia supported studios alongside artists from Arts Project, in what will be a celebration of cross-cultural dialogue and exciting juxtaposition.

Baker, formerly Senior Curator, Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Victoria, is now director of Fleisher/Ollman, Philadelphia, an internationally recognised gallery exploring the resonance of self-taught and contemporary art.
