The Art of Reparations at Temple Contemporary

...despite its first floor location in Tyler School of Art on Temple’s campus on Norris Street at 12th...

These installations will be on view at Temple Contemporary through February 10, 2017. Temple Contemporary is located at 2001 N. 13th Street, and is open Wednesday through Sunday, 11–6 pm.

    The Art of Reparations at Temple Contemporary
    The unusual combination of works appears to represent studies of the human condition-music stilled, broken bones, poverty, torture, a near-death experience, and more. The works are crammed together, much like the city, much like Temple University itself, as they present artists' views of disparate problems facing us.
