Grizzly Grizzly

Philadelphia, PA

Grizzly Grizzly is an artist collective in Philadelphia, PA. We are all practicing artists who also curate exhibitions, performances, and alternative programming. Using the creative problem-solving skills needed in our daily studio practices, we create a meeting-ground for dialog and a space for innovative work without the constraints of institutional agendas or commercial interests.

We are a collective of sharp edges, committed to frank discussion and unexpected pairings. We do not strive for consensus; we do not show our own work in the space. We are artists curating other artists, supporting a community of makers from within.

Grizzly Grizzly's ongoing mission is to blur organizational lines, promote community, and –above all– take risks. In our intimate exhibition space, we build new connections between artists, curators, and our greater community in Philadelphia and beyond.

Grizzly Grizzly began in 2009 and is currently under the stewardship of Talia GreeneAmy HicksAngela McQuillanMaggie MillsEphraim Russell, and Phillip Scarpone.

Our blog, Speak Speak, features artist interviews and essays.
