Megawords X Temple Urban Archives Screening at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Tuesday, January 24th, 2012

Temple University Libraries’ Urban Archives and Megawords Magazine are partnering for a screening as part of the Zoe Strauss: Ten Years exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. All films are drawn from our television news collection and are loosely inspired by the work of Zoe Strauss, Megawords and the PMA itself. All footage where the gaze of the news camera puts you in touch with the rituals, traditions, places and challenges of Philadelphia and its residents over three decades. Some material has screened at previous UA screenings and some is new.

Advance tickets are free (but with a $3.50 service charge) here:

You could also come to the PMA earlier to reserve a seat with no charge.

Book list for the our book shop at the PMA!

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Here is a list of the books that will be available in the bookshop section of our installation!

In our book shop you will find shelves stocked with new and used books and magazines. These books will be for sale, but commerce is not the point. Our aim is to define a cultural space and to position the books as objects of discussion, exploration, explanation and departure.

The books we’ve chosen cover a wide range of topics: music, film, urban affairs, photography, fiction, philosophy, cycling, etc.. They are a living, breathing reading list that encourages the contemplation of different world-views and are an important source of inspiration for us. We hope that by sharing these books, we can demonstrate the direct link between being excited by the work of others and producing one’s own work.
