Opening Reception 11 August 2016,
Icebox Project Space
1400 N. American St. Philadelphia Pa
The Icebox Project Space and Marginal Utility are proud to present Unlisted,
a unique art fair setting that focuses on curation through a thoughtful interplay between 13 spaces arranged by Philadelphia based curators, here
gallerists and artists.
Each of the 13 spaces will present a small autonomous exhibition that converses with its direct neighbor as well as the entire Icebox space, expanding out to a broader consideration of the current climate of Philadelphia’s established and growing arts communities.
This intergenerational fair will highlight the various modes of creative production and exhibition strategies that are deployed by the curators through their inclusion of international, national, and regionally shown artists that define this current moment throughout Philadelphia.
Curators, gallerists and artist-curators shape the visual culture of the city that they live in, and each exhibition presented by Unlisted is a testament to the generative capacity that exhibitions can have within a strong and vital art scene.
–new conversations become new ideas.
The wide range of artists presented within Unlisted reflect the emerging cosmopolitan shift that is unfolding throughout the city. This cross section of curatorial approaches attempts to articulate Philadelphia’s place in the national arts conversation and orient ourselves towards what’s yet to come.
