Global Dye Works







On my way out of Philadelphia yesterday, I stopped at Global Dye Works, not having a clue what to expect. I was pretty much overwhelmed by all the installations and the factory itself. I took a ton of pictures without paying much attention to small details...like the names of the artists. Below is the information about the space and the participating artists. It is worth taking the trip to see this show and of course saving time to see Paul Behnke and Tremain Smith's show at the Rosenfeld Gallery. I will post those photos later on this week.

Information for Catagenesis
From September 9 – October 21, 2012 fifteen artists will transform the ground floor (and the roof) of Globe Dye Works into “Catagenesis”, an exhibition of site specific installations and multi-media artworks sponsored by Philadelphia Sculptors. Artists from Canada, Israel and the U. S., including Globe resident artist Joe Leroux, will repurpose discarded Globe equipment and industrial detritus as they unveil their responses to the building and its complex history as a dye manufacturing facility. A video featuring the history of Globe and its current revival will be on view.

4500 WORTH ST, PHILADELPHIA, PA Hours: Saturday and Sunday, noon – 5:00 pm Public Closing Reception
Sunday, October 21, 2012:– 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Nice so nice. I ever seen this types of design and artistic work.

I like this types of works cause I can't do this.
