For his 2nd solo exhibition with Samsøn, Cuban American, Philadelphia-based multidisciplinary artist Gabriel Martinez addresses the complex intersections at the core of contemporary, gay male sexual identities. The exhibition, a diverse mix of new works, questions male power dynamics; subverting and making reference to a wide range of cultural products at the heart of socio, political and sexual discourses on masculinity. In Martinez’s hands, these elements, playful at first, belie deeper meanings about sexual desire among men, reclaiming and bringing what seems to exist at the margins' full center.

Nancy Davenport is a welcome addition to in the Department of Fine Arts, where she has been appointed as Assistant Professor. Davenport's teaching, commitment to cross-disciplinary exchange, and international reputation as a significant interdisciplinary artist working in the fields of photography, animation, and digital media will make her a valued member of the standing faculty. Davenport explores photography through a series of computer-manipulated photographs that challenge illusions of the real embedded within the photographic medium. She examines the politics of representation by tracing the continuities of historical photographic practices within contemporary digital culture. Recent projects interrogated the social structure of workers at manufacturing plants in Germany and China and the stigmas and complexities of brutalist architecture. Davenport will continue her expansive and provocative research at PennDesign.
