Join PAFA Curator of Contemporary Art Jodi Throckmorton and Lightbox Film Center Chief Curator Jesse Pires for a tour of contemporary video artist Bill Viola: Ocean Without a Shore and Dream Dance: The Art of Ed Emshwiller.

Having briefly overlapped at the WNET/THIRTEEN Television Laboratory in the 1970s, both Ed Emshwiller and Bill Viola created art that merges the human figure with video technology.

The tour begins in PAFA’s galleries with a look at Viola and other contemporary video artists on view and then travels down Broad Street to the Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery (333 South Broad Street) to explore an extensive exhibition of Emshwiller’s paintings, illustrations, videos, and archival material.
