Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Laurel McLaughlin, and Mechella Yezernitskaya
Catalogue to the exhibition Swarm at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, June 30, 2018-September 9, 2018, curated by Laurel McLaughlin and Mechella Yezernitskaya (graduate students, History of Art, Bryn Mawr College).
The work of artists Didier William (b. 1983) and Nestor Armando Gil (b. 1971) beckons viewers, as an imperative, to physically and intellectually “swarm” conceptions of colonialism in order to disarm such narratives of power. The artists’ mixed media practices in printmaking, painting, collage, sculpture, installation, and performance are inflected by their Haitian and Cuban heritages as well as the diasporic communities they call home in the United States.
Didier William, born in Haiti and active in the United States, is a painter and printmaker, whose work critiques the historical narratives of colonialism through strategies of mythmaking. Nestor Armando Gil was born to Cuban immigrants in Florida and currently resides in the United States. His work examines movement, memory, and loss within diasporic communities in sculpture and performance.
Their experiential works provide encounters with constructed and imaginary histories of immigration. Together, their work allows for an inclusive viewing experience that disables the divisive logic of “we” versus “them” embedded within past and current discussions of immigration. Rather than adhering to previous historical outcomes, William and Gil investigate the processes of building community across diaspora, dislocation, and relocation.
This exhibition will take place in the Historic Landmark Buildings and is accompanied by public programming and an online publication featuring interviews with the artists and curatorial notes.

Beyond Boundaries: Feminine Forms is the first exhibition to unite two important Philadelphia collections of art by women: the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts’ (PAFA) Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Women and Bryn Mawr College (BMC) Special Collections’ William and Uytendale Scott Memorial Study Collection of Works by Women Artists. Laurel McLaughlin and Mechella Yezernitskaya, doctoral students in the History of Art at BMC, astutely observed the connections between these two collections and initiated this collaboration. They have curated an insightful exhibition that rigorously examines a wide range of issues related to female representation—a topic that has been addressed by artists for centuries and continues to resonate in our current political moment. In addition, their thoughtful interviews with Bill Scott and Linda Lee Alter for this catalogue give meaningful context to these groups of work and will be appreciated by art historians for many years to come. Lee and Bill share a generosity of spirit and a steadfast passion for art, which is apparent in these contemplative discussions.

Ivan S. Turgenev, Olga D. Nelidova, Anatoly Vishevsky (ed.), and Irene Nelidow (ed.)
In 2015 Elisabeth Nelidow Pantaleoni (BMC 1951) gave these 17 letters from Ivan Turgenev to her grandmother Olga Nelidova (née Khilkova) to Bryn Mawr College to be scanned and placed in the College repository, with the originals to be placed in the College manuscript collection. The letters came from the estate of her sister, Irina Nelidow (BMC AB 1950, MA 1952), who had been working on a translation and commentary with the assistance of Anatoly Vishevsky, a professor of Russian at Grinell College. Their labors produced the present introduction, translation and commentary in the mid-1990’s but Irene’s efforts to secure publication were unsuccessful.

As part of our Migrations and Borderlands 360° course cluster, we brought the travelling photography exhibition Del Golfo al Pacífico, which chronicles the evolution of the U.S.-Mexico border over the last three decades, to Bryn Mawr College. This exhibition was curated by El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF), a research institute in Tijuana, Mexico dedicated to studying the phenomenon of migration between the two countries. Our students used this exhibition as an analytical and artistic tool to prepare for our class trip to Tucson and Nogales, Arizona and to Tijuana. While in Mexico, we had the opportunity to do a photography workshop with Alfonso Caraveo Castro, a photographer at COLEF and one of the curators of Del Golfo al Pacífico. We asked students to select one of the photographs they took during our trip to the border and put it in dialogue with one of the COLEF photographs, narrating what they learned about migration from this experience. Collected herein are our students’ images, analyses, and meditations on the U.S.-Mexico border.
