Collette Copeland's Live, Laugh, and Die: Unraveling Contemporary Culture and Media exhibition includes photographs, mixed media, sculpture, installations, and short digital-films. Her one-person exhibition presents a unique exhibition experience for JCC's Weeks Gallery audiences. She unravels and re-imagines contemporary culture and media with a fox's instincts. Outmoded norms, war, the role of media, childhood fantasies, marriage, bioengineering, and family intimacy are explored and questioned. Seldom have I seen an artistic vision that presents classically beautiful works that are contemporary, luring, dark, cunning, and filled with comic relief.

Copeland, a senior fellow of critical writing at the University of Pennsylvania, is the recipient of a Leeway Foundation Award for Art & Change. She was a master lecturer at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, where she taught Critical Issues in Photography and Senior Seminar/Critical Theory. She received her MFA from Syracuse University and BFA from Pratt Institute, New York, New York.
