This exhibition mines the extensive photography holdings in the University of Pennsylvania’s Art Collection and Gabriel Martinez, Senior Lecturer in Penn’s School of Design is guest Curator. Since September 2011, Martinez has surveyed and documented every photograph in the University collection, along with Heather Gibson, Collections Manager.

To mix things up, Martinez has invited his eight photography colleagues (who are also working artists) in the Fine Arts Department, School of Design, to curate a few photos from their distinct point of view. 9 Perspectives will bring the University’s photography collection into an entirely new focus.
