Vox Populi is an artist collective working to support challenging and experimental artists and ideas with monthly exhibitions, gallery talks, performances, lectures, and related programming. For more than twenty years, Vox has played a unique role in the cultural life of Philadelphia by presenting a diverse range of programming, serving as a forum for contemporary artistic discourse, and providing a supportive environment in which artists can take risks and gain valuable professional experience.
Vox maintains a rotating membership and relies on a commitment to working collectively. Its comprehensive exhibition program includes solo shows of both member and guest artists, a curated film and video space (called Fourth Wall), guest-curated shows, exchanges with peer organizations, and group shows that provide critical exposure for emerging artists.
