Radial Survey Vol. 2 Opening Party

Join us for the Opening Party of Radial Survey Vol. II, our biennial exhibition that explores the state of photography in the 300-mile radius surrounding Pittsburgh.

This biennial was created to fill a gap in the cultural landscape; we needed to share the work of the very best photographers in our region, which we decided to define as the wide and rich space between the art capitals of New York City and Chicago, with Pittsburgh at its center. Radial Survey is thorough, thoughtful and engaging, and it is more than a group of pictures on the walls. It is a deep, fun and provocative conversation with our community.

Radial Survey Vol. II highlights work and supports eight outstanding artists from places that are too often overlooked in the national photography conversation. Our intention is not to identify a regional style or movement, but rather to offer a proposition: that artists in this space engage with histories and mythologies that are unique to them.

Sponsorships and ticket sales support the artists while they create new works for this show, commission three outstanding scholars from our region to contextualize the work, allow us to create a beautiful catalog, and help us to engage the artists, scholars, and the Radial community in a public symposium to dig deep into the connections and nuances of this important project.

The Radial Survey Opening Party includes a first look at the exhibition, cocktails plus beer and wine, food by Sprezzatura and a chance to mingle with the artists and curators themselves as well as other supporters of Silver Eye.
