Gravy Studio & Gallery is proud to present Poetics of Place, a reprise of the group exhibition presented at the Satellite Art Show in December 2017 during Miami Art Week. We are excited to bring the work back in Philadelphia for an encore showing.

Poetics of Place is titled in reference to Gaston Bachelard’s book, The Poetics of Space, which explores the phenomenology of architecture in relationship to the lived experience. This photographic exhibition examines humanity’s innate link with place historically, geographically, economically and culturally. Each artist, in their own way, explores a “topophilic" response to the nature of place. Artists included in this exhibition are: Rebekah Flake, Mark Havens, Neil Kohl, Sage Lewis, Ben Riley, Amy Ritter, Krista Svalbonas and Katie Tackman. Gravy also collaborated with designers Permanent Drift to create a special exhibition catalog which can be purchased at the exhibit along with other books, zines, and prints they have created.
