Founded in 1988, Vox Populi is a member-run artist collective that presents exhibitions in its white box main gallery, performances in its black box AUX space, media programs in its curated video-lounge, and other programs such as gallery talks, performances, lectures, and related events. The gallery periodically invites curators from outside the Philadelphia region to curate thematic exhibitions. Recent guest curators include Lia Gangiatano (Participant Inc., New York), Malik Gaines (LAX, Los Angeles), Ceci Moss (Hammer Museum, Los Angeles), and Astria Suparak (formerly of Miller Gallery, Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh). A 2013 Center grant supported the launch of a curatorial fellowship program dedicated to performance art.
