(Link will go live on 04/29/2021)Join us for a studio tour and presentation by Philadelphia-based artist and curator Tyler Kline. Born and raised in Stone Mountain, GA, Kline studied Architecture and Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He received a BA in both Anthropology and Sculpture from Portland State University and an MFA in Installation and Sculpture from The Pennsylvania Academy of The Fine Arts. Kline has worked in the sphere of urban interior and exterior intervention for two decades, beginning with creating skate-parks in unused urban spaces in Atlanta, to creating a sculpture garden in the shadows of re-purposed textile mills through Little Berlin in Philadelphia. He makes immersive installations and netart, and creates animated gifs as a way of exploring and constructing glitch theory. Kline’s own point of research within this field is to break the conceptual screen and expose the underlying, subjective, and internal forces that are imprisoned within them by late stage capitalism.
