Nestor Gil

The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) showcased the work of artists Didier William and Nestor Armando Gil/Taller Workshop in the exhibition SWARM., on view from June 28–September 9, 2018 in both the Fisher Brooks and Morris Galleries, across the campus of PAFA’s Samuel M.V. Hamilton and Historic Landmark Buildings.

SWARM. is organized into five thematic sections which explore revolution, spirituality, process, migratory identity, and affect, in which William and Gil reveal their multilayered Haitian and Cuban heritages, respectively, inflected by the diasporic communities they call home in the U.S. Viewers encountered more than 30 works in a variety of media such as printmaking, painting, sculpture, installation, and performance.
