Philadelphia Contemporary

June 2022 $115,000 / 12 months

Philadelphia Contemporary launched a Lived Culture program (2022-2023) with the goal of creating an entire series of programs devoted to the practice of lived culture – the artistry of living and thriving in the everyday. Funding supported a major boundary-pushing project: Supine Horizons (2022), which focused on rest. This project was unique because it centered and institutionalized everyday creative practices within a contemporary art museum setting, and challenged the traditional way of viewing these practices. PC believes that the Lived Culture curatorial program has the potential to help shift the contemporary art world at large and begin to change the discourse around contemporary art, particularly who it is for and who gets to determine what kinds of art get produced and presented.
