Trust Falls

6 August - 10 September 2022

Opening Reception:
Saturday, August 6, 2-6pm

Trust Falls culminated from a candid interest in exploring what it means and has meant, especially over the past couple of years, to be a ‘neighbor.’ FJORD members looked to the straightforward meaning of this word, “someone or thing situated very near,” as the curatorial launching point and each member invited an artist who lives nearby their own home to participate in the show. The brief prompt launched a curatorial exercise that placed trust in our cooperative as we curated our first exhibition together in this new space. Trust Falls draws together a group of artists living and working in Philadelphia; we hope it might provide a fresh look at the expansive network and connections of our own city and communities. As we familiarize ourselves with our third location in the city, Fjord is excited to open our doors again and provide a space for dialogue and experimentation in a growing and changing city. The exhibition will be on view from from August 6 - September 10, 2022. An opening reception will be held Saturday, August 8th from 2-6pm.
