Artist-run gallery Grizzly Grizzly draws on the wealth of artists in the Greater Philadelphia Area to put our members' work in context. In the multi-disciplinary exhibition Listening In: Philly Artists Speak, Grizzly Grizzly members curate one another in separate gallery spaces at the Abington Art Center, working with local artists outside of our immediate group of collaborators.
Since members' works are never shown in our 319 N 11th Street gallery space, Grizzly Grizzly's practices have until now had a binary division: either we are curating other artists in our space or showing our own work together in another space (until now, only in other cities). Listening In uses Grizzly's idiosyncratic curatorial model, but instead reflects that process onto its own members.
