Philadelphia, PA – THE HALIDE PROJECT is pleased to announce MAKING CONTACT, an exhibition featuring the work of five artists practicing different traditional photographic techniques.

Ranging from salt prints to chromogenic prints, these images exemplify the creative breadth that is possible within the umbrella of traditional photography. In bringing this work to Philadelphia, THE HALIDE PROJECT hopes to inspire people to explore photographic processes that were developed prior to the digital era. Information on the artists and image samples can be found on the following pages.

To kick off the exhibition, there will be a champagne preview prior to the public opening, with hors d’oeuvres generously provided by Russet restaurant. Tickets will cost $25, and reservations can be made through THE HALIDE PROJECT web- site.

Throughout the month of December, there will be educational programming held in conjunction with the exhibition. Events include: A gallery talk and book signing with Vincent Feldman, where he will discuss his project City Abandoned and the public policies that have contributed to the changing face of Philadelphia neighborhoods and architecture; a large format camera workshop led by Rick Wright, where people interested in taking their photography to the next level can learn about shooting large format; and a pinhole camera-building workshop led by Stephanie Slate, where participants will create cameras out of every day objects and use them to shoot paper negatives.
Space for the workshops is limited; registration is required and can be made through THE HALIDE PROJECT website.

THE HALIDE PROJECT invites educators to arrange tours of the exhibition by contacting:

GRAPHIC By Lindsay Keys

  • Nov 12th - Dec 7th, 2015
  • Second Thursday Reception: November 12th, 6 - 9 pm
  • The Archive Space
  • Wednesday - Saturday 12-6PM
  • Free & Open To The Public

Shot with an iPhone camera, GRAPHIC considers the boundaries between safe and unsafe, selfie and self-portrait, exhibitionist and artist. It is a dissection of the self as an assemblage of flesh, expressed in equal parts and pixels. Decontextualized, it is a shared fantasy. In reality, this is my body.

A World of Masks 2015

  • October 8 to December 31, 2015
  • Second Thursday Receptions:  October 8, November 12, December 10, 6 to 9pm
  • Indigo Arts
  • Wednesday - Saturday 12-6PM
  • Free & Open To The Public

This is the season of transition and transformation.  In the spirit of Halloween and Los Dias de los Muertos, the Days of the Dead, Indigo Arts presents a collection of masks from Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Pacific.  They are masks that conceal, but may also reveal the wearer behind them. Masks are agents of celebration and transcendence, of commemoration and transformation.

The exhibit includes dance, festival and ritual masks, of wood, metal and papier maché from many countries, including Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Congo, Gabon, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mexico, Nepal, New Guinea, Nigeria, Peru and Sierra Leone.

“The Mexican, whether young or old, criollo or mestizo, general or laborer or lawyer, seems to me to be a person who shuts himself away to protect himself: his face is a mask and so is his smile. In his harsh solitude, which is both barbed and courteous, everything serves him as a defense: silence and words, politeness and disdain, irony and resignation…. He builds a wall of indifference and remoteness between reality and himself, a wall that is no less impenetrable for being invisible. The Mexican is always remote, from the world and from other people. And also from himself.”
– Octavio Paz in The Labyrinth of Solitude, 1961

Ann-Marie LeQuesn

Ann-Marie LeQuesne
  • October 8th, 2015
  • The Icebox
  • Free & Open To The Public

On Thursday, October 8th of 2015, the Icebox Project Space hosted Ann-Marie LeQuesne, a London-based artist who works with the public to stage collaborative performances, for a screening of her works performed this summer in Philadelphia. These films included performances of Crescendo, which she most recently executed at the Icebox Project Space in August, and Fanfare for Crossing the Road, which was recently performed on the University of Pennsylvania’s campus, as well as other works.

Crescendo responds to the acoustic and the physical space of Icebox. Participants were asked to make “structured noise” by constantly repeat initials (their own or anything they wanted to chant) as they entered the space. The sharp staccato sounds became tones that extended and mingled in the long echo of the space. Crescendo was previously performed in Sweden.

Fanfare for Crossing the Road began in London and has since been performed in Helsinki, Lisbon, Cardiff, New York, and now, Philadelphia. In each country Ann-Marie ask musicians, dressed in uniforms and positioned beside the traffic lights, to add ceremony to an everyday event: to mimic as closely as possible the digital acoustic crossing sounds (different in every country) that signal the time to cross for the blind. For the Philadelphia sound – a bird chirp – Ann-Marie used piccolos for the first time, with speakers to count down the lights.

Old Enough to Know Better

  • November 4 to November 28
  • Opening Reception: November 12, 2015 6-9PM
  • Gallery 105
  • Wed-Sat, Noon 6:00PM
  • Free & Open To The Public

The Women’s Caucus for Art, Philadelphia Chapter, is pleased to present Old Enough to Know Better, a group exhibition of work by women artists over the age of 35 at the Crane Arts Galleryl 05, November 4 to November 28, 2015 with an opening reception Thursday, November 12th from 6 9PM.

Juried by prominent Philadelphia based artists Eileen Neff and Diane Burko, 67 pieces were selected from over 2,000 works entered. This group of work reflects the need and desire of women to make art despite lack of feedback or support and the ongoing under-representation of women’s work in galleries and museums. The ensuing resiliency, born of stubbornness and persistence in pursuing an artistic vocation, is evident in the diverse works on view, which include paintings, sculpture, photography and video.

About the Women’s Caucus for Art: Founded in 1972 the WCA mission is to create community through art, education, and social activism. A founding member of the Feminist Art Project, WCA is part of a collaborative national initiative celebrating the Feminist Art Movement and the aesthetic, intellectual and political impact of women on the visual arts, art history, and art practice, past and present.

“What is freedom to you? How do you define someone who is unfree? Can a person, physically liberated, be more restricted than someone who is serving a jail sentence? Can an imprisoned person be more unconfined than someone walking around like you and me? Are we in control of our own mental space? Is it possible for us to break down years of conditioning and unlearn what we’ve picked up to create better conditions? With this collection we’re exploring those questions. A lot of the process for this series was creating pieces using masking tape that were then broken down and used to create better pieces. With this show we’ve documented a small section of our own search for the meaning and ultimately the realization of true freedom. As always, we hope you enjoy the show.”

Smashed Label is a duo consisting of brothers Crae and Corei Washington. They were raised in Bear, DE with pretty typical childhoods. They drew and painted as kids and continued to do so as they matured. They promote the message of being yourself in the midst of any and all scrutiny, ridicule and/or judgment. They speak for the people that don’t “fit in” to any particular group or category.

Their art explores the dualities in people and ideas. They experiment with perception and popular opinion, and shine a light on the positive aspects of widely perceived negative concepts and vice versa. Smashed Label has a colorful, illustrative style that often clashes with the subject matter they choose, which further demonstrates that everything has both a good and bad side that can be spun either way depending on what angle you’re viewing it from. They source inspiration from music, film, friends, family, strangers and pretty much everything. They also create in a number of mediums from graphic design, to acrylic paintings on canvas, wall murals and screen print tee shirt designs. The duo’s goal is to simply spread their art, and will continue to participate in events and functions that bring an awareness and understanding that art has the power to save lives.

Screen Time features works by artists Asha Schechter and Sandra Vaka Olsen and is guest curated by Tina Kukielski. The work in this exhibition challenges the definition of the photographic image. Both Schechter and Vaka Olsen explore the effects of the digital screen on the process and product of contemporary image-making. In Schechter and Vaka Olsen’s work, gestures, icons, and depictions of the screen itself break free from the confines of the rectilinear form, and extend into the material world.

Traditionally, the photograph has presented a window into another reality. Today we are surrounded by screens and digital displays with our visual fields rapidly reconfigured and replaced by the many devices that occupy our world. By creating works that transform the surface of the computer screen into printed material artworks that activate three dimensions, Schechter and Vaka Olsen’s works challenge a photograph’s state of matter.

In conjunction with this exhibition, PPAC will host a screening of The Invisible Photograph on Thursday, October 1st.


Asha Schechter (b. 1979, in Sebastopol, California; lives and works in Los Angeles) For artist Asha Schechter, digitally generated 3-D images represent a new kind of image that has a separate economy from that of the photograph, with its own descriptive language, production and terms. Schechter’s work explores this new economy of images that nonetheless require specialization in their making. Schechter liberates his chosen subjects, allowing images to step outside of the screen and into our surrounding environment. In so doing, he highlights the sometimes arbitrary and sometimes functional qualities of an emerging visual vocabulary.

Sandra Vaka Olsen (b. 1980 in Stavanger, Norway; lives and works in Berlin)
For artist Sandra Vaka Olsen, chemical and technical processes contribute to the work’s creation. Vaka Olsen’s thoroughly distinct approach reverses the process of digital photography. Her digital images are first altered on screen before they take on a material form. She does this through the application of liquids directly onto her LCD screen. Later, once the distorted, pixelated image is printed, Vaka Olsen then applies analogue photographic methods to create yet another layer of gestural expression. The work is a complex blend of analogue and digital effects that express the challenges of finding a place for human touch in an increasingly automated world.


Tina Kukielski was co-curator of the 2013 Carnegie International with Daniel Baumann and Dan Byers, and served as curator of the Hillman Photography Initiative. She recently curated the exhibition Cory Arcangel: Masters (November 3, 2012–January 27, 2013). Kukielski was formerly senior curatorial assistant at the Whitney Museum of American Art where she co-organized the museum’s contemporary project series from 2007–2011. While at the Whitney, she also curated a number of group exhibitions of photography. Her publications include catalogue essays for *William Eggleston: Democratic Camera, Photography and Video, 1958–2008* (2008), Taryn Simon: An American Index of the Hidden and Unfamiliar (2008), and Gordon Matta-Clark: You Are the Measure (2007), among others. She is also a recent contributor to Mousse and The Exhibitionist.

This exhibition is made possible with support from the Royal Norwegian Consulate General and PPAC’s donors and members.

InLiquid Presents: Kathleen Shaver

  • August 13 – October 2, 2015
  • Second Thursday receptions: August 13 & September 10, 6-9pm
  • The Hall
  • Wednesday-Saturday 12-6PM
  • Free & Open To The Public

InLiquid presents The Structure of Chaos, a solo exhibition by artist member Kathleen Shaver, at The Hall at Crane Arts from August 13 – October 2, 2015. This show presents new works, including six large paintings exploring the contrasts and tensions between free gestural paint application and structured repeating patterns. A lush paint application and lively gestural strokes characterize her work, which often exhibits a highly textured surface and dense buildup of pigment, demonstrating the influences of abstract expressionism and neo‐expressionism.

Kathleen Shaver is a Philadelphia painter who studied at Moore College of Art & Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) with teachers and mentors including Bill Richards, Chuck Fahlen, and Thomas Chimes. Her work has been included in a major survey of contemporary Philadelphia artists at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and in exhibits at PAFA, Woodmere Art Museum, James A. Michener Art Museum, The State Museum of Pennsylvania, and Moore. Shaver is also a graduate of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. In 2011, she completed a permanent installation of 27 paintings, The History of Nursing as Seen Through the Lens of Art, at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing to celebrate 125 years of nursing at Penn.

Shaver writes about her art:
“My interest in painting focuses on the ability of paint, through gestural mark-making, texture, and color, to record the mysterious aspects of human existence and to convey what lies beyond verbal expression. The act of painting helps me to find meaning. I want my canvases to inspire others to grasp a revealed meaning and be enriched.”

Support provided in part by the Philadelphia Cultural Fund.

STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE / SIGNAL GHOST / SATURNALIA will be an occupation by the Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade in the Icebox Project Space, with the objective to establish a Temporary Autonomous Zone – an exercise in scaled suzerainty.

The Brigade will compose an installation on site of various carnivalesque and ritual/performance centered spatial objects,bringing a formidable assortment of sound equipment, instruments, less-lethal weapons, tools, lights, smoke machines, costumes, semantra, and more.

The exhibition will feature in part the public debut of the WINVASION video project, to be accompanied live on the evening of Thursday the 13th by an ensemble of musicians featuring the Brigade and an assortment of invited guests who will perform a continuous improvised group sound action from approximately 7 until 10 pm.
Saturday the 22nd will feature a series of 30 minute performances / sound projects by various Philadelphia based musicians/artists in a carnival atmosphere running from approximately 2 – 10 pm. The Brigade will be conducting various actions throughout the day.


The Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade is an enthusiastic band of artist-musician-culture saboteurs – a most serious collective of prankster / activists. Formed in late 2011 in city of Quaker William Penn, to whom in part we owe our position in marginal philosophies, the Brigade is a small organization dedicated to the direct action of untrammeled creative expression. Hailing from a variety of backgrounds, individual members pursue independent enterprises but come together when opportunity arises to manifest beguiling circumstances at the confluence of art and performance in the public sphere. Having co-opted the structure of a military unit and transformed it into a vehicle of artistic action, they seek to draw even the most casual observers into our web of limitless freedom of thought and the thrilling psychic terrain it makes accessible to all. While dominant trends in contemporary art practice have skewed heavily into critical theory and practice, the Brigade engages the world and its occupants outside of hyper-intellectualized frameworks.

InLiquid Presents Eric Fausnacht & Woodley White

  • June 11 – August 7, 2015
  • Second Thursday receptions: June 11 and July 9, 6-9pm
  • The Hall
  • Wed-Sat 12-6PM
  • Free & Open To The Public

InLiquid presents Point of Reference, featuring the work of InLiquid artist member Eric Fausnacht and guest artist Woodley White, at The Hall at Crane Arts from June 11 – August 7, 2015. The works of both artists are based around themed studies, each using careful observation and documentation to uniquely capture the familiar.

Eric Fausnacht paints portraits of domestic fowl in a contemporary/pop/baroque style. His paintings of roosters and chickens are depicted in a photo-realistic style brought together with an ornate baroque background, illuminating the regal portraiture of the subject matter. Fausnacht is a Philadelphia artist based out of Bucks County Pennsylvania, whose work is in private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Canada, and Asia. After receiving a BSE in Art Education from Millersville University of Pennsylvania, Fausnacht continued his education at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and The Art Institute of Philadelphia. He has exhibited throughout the region, including Muse Gallery, Hicks Gallery, Bucks County Community College/Temple University and a numerous juried exhibitions. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and the Designer Craftsmen of Philadelphia.

Woodley White’s history with bottles began with purchasing colognes from vendors in the markets of Philadelphia. The experience of selecting and purchasing the fragrances in each bottle inspired Woodley to begin drawing these vessels dozens at a time. Over the years Woodley’s love for bottles has grown and developed artistically from pencil drawings on notebook paper to acrylic paintings on large canvases. Woodley continues to find new ways to express his passion for bottles and replications of other objects he values. Woodley is a member of CIS’s Outside the Frame (OTF) Studios and has exhibited work at the Philadelphia Brighter Futures Awards, Dick Blick, Fringe Salon, Swarthmore Library, and 40th St. Artists in Residence, Philadelphia. Woodley’s paintings were also featured in a solo exhibit at Halycon Floats in 2014.

Supper: People on the Move

  • June 25th – 28th, 2015
  • The Icebox & The Grey Area
  • Performances at 8 pm each day
  • $20 general admission, $15 for seniors and students (link for tickets below)

Choreographer Silvana Cardell premieres a new dance performance inspired by themes of migration. Supper, People on the Move explores the complex experience of dislocation. Featuring stunning choreography, eight dancers of supreme ability and daring physicality, the highly regarded music of Nick Zammuto, special guest artists, and even a communal feast to end the performance, Supper, People on the Move promises to be an exhilarating and emotionally powerful event.

Purchase Tickets Here:

The dance is an examination of the human experience of all people on the move, looking for new horizons. Physical bodies moving between physical places define migration, and the immigrant journey is at the heart of humanity’s ability to survive. From this rich and fertile history Cardell creates evocative forms of movement—abstract, personal, universal— performed by virtuosic dancers, who dance with unrelenting physicality and create striking moments of beauty.

In conjunction with the performance is an exhibition, Portraits of People on the Move, of personal stories and images from Philadelphia-area immigrants. The exhibition will be at Crane Arts Building’s Grey Area, adjacent to the performance space, with individuals stories also featured on
