Christina P. Day Artist Talk

Join us for Christina P. Day's artist talk about her solo exhibition "Stills and Composites." Space is limited, please RSVP to

Day created the works in this exhibition in response to home video footage from the wedding anniversary celebration of her great aunt and uncle in 1983. She employs found materials and architectural constructions to restage this fragmentary video from different perspectives. 

The centerpiece of the show is a large-scale installation titled "The light I’ll be (1983)." Composed of a white-walled cube, each side is interrupted by an impassable opening that offers a tantalizing view into the interior. Day has constructed a maze of walls and surfaces inside the cube, collapsing and manipulating the viewer’s perspective. 

Christina P. Day lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. She earned a BFA from the University of the Arts, and an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her work has been exhibited at the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym, the Hongik Museum of Art (Seoul, Korea), the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum of Art (Collegeville, PA), NAPOLEON (Philadelphia, PA), the Artist-Run project at the Satellite Show (Miami, FL), the Philadelphia Art Alliance, and the Woodmere Art Museum (Philadelphia, PA). She has held residencies at Sculpture Space, the Vermont Studio Center, the Haystack Mountain School of Craft, and RAIR (Recycled Artist in Residency). She is a former member of the NAPOLEON artist collective of Philadelphia (2012-2016). She teaches in the Crafts/Fiber Program at the University of the Arts (Philadelphia, PA) and is a Professor of Fiber at the Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD).
