Timothy Curtis: If I Had Your Hand I'd Cut Mine Off

Free with registration

Timothy Curtis' story is also a Philadelphia story. He began making art as a graffiti writer in Philadelphia during the early 2000’s. He moves fast in an effort to connect to his city, his family and his community. Today Curtis lives and works in Brooklyn. His paintings and drawings regularly return to the expressiveness and layered palimpsests of wall writing. In addition to graffiti forms, Curtis references symbols and images sourced from popular culture, art historical canons, and his biography. Curtis developed a prolific drawing practice while incarcerated for seven years, which continues today and has allowed him to build an expansive iconography.

Join Timothy Curtis and Lori Waselchuk as they talk about Timothy’s practice, graffiti in Philadelphia, and ideas about freedom.

Art At Noon lectures are supported by the Behrend Family in memory of Rose Susan Hirschhorn Behrend, a former docent at the Academy and great supporter of its education programs.
