Little Berlin is excited to announce solo exhibitions from four recent MFA graduates. The selected artists represent graduate programs from Pacific Northwest College of Art, University of Pennsylvania, Tyler School of the Arts, and Moore College of Art & Design. The MFA Series is looking to tap into the momentum of two years of intensive graduate studio practice by offering each artist a solo exhibition just weeks after graduation. These exhibitions offer an opportunity to exhibit four emerging artists representing four distinct methodologies utilizing painting, photography, installation, sculpture and digital approaches. The exhibitions will take place in July during four weekends with opening receptions on the 2nd, 9th, 23rd and 30th. 
Kaitlin Pomerantz is a recent graduate from the University of Pennsylvania, receiving her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art. Pomerantz will present AS IS (Emerald St., Philadelphia), a site-specific, time-based, documentary project dealing with vacant space, urban development, painting, participation, chance and change.
Additional Programing:WALLS TALK BACK
Sunday, July 10th, 3-4:30pm
Artist talk, interview and Q+A with Kaitlin Pomerantz, Mariel Capanna, and Paul M. Farber

Please join artists Kaitlin Pomerantz and Mariel Capanna for a public interview moderated by historian/curator Paul M. Farber. The discussion will focus on the artists’ recent works involving walls, unintentional collaboration, and graffiti feedback–getting at questions of the relationship between (sanctioned) public art and (unsolicited) public response, and the potential for unexpected meanings emerging from this interactive dialogue. Work from Pomerantz’ Philadelphia-based project As Is will be on display, as well as projected images from Capanna’s recent LA River fresco project with artist Rafa Esparza.
