About the DISPLAY Exhibition
Fleisher Art Memorial’s first edition of the international exhibition Display will feature the audio visual work of 12 artists or collectives projected through large size windows from the Suzanne Fleisher & Ralph Joel Roberts Gallery in the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. These windows face the diverse region of Southeast Philadelphia. For this reason Fleisher Art Memorial seeks audio visual works that establishes a conversation dealing with international immigrant’s issues, conditions, and exodus manifestations in the recent years.
