Ben Kelley Floodplain
May in the Grey Area

Institute of Contemporary Art Baltimore presents Floodplain, sculptural works by Benjamin Kelley at the Icebox’s Grey Area at the Crane Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Floodplain is comprised of two new artworks; one consisting of fragments from a rare, early model F-15 fighter aircraft reconfigured in the center of the gallery space. Encircling the chaotic composition is the second piece, a triptych of mechanized vessels producing an opaque tiding bath of iron oxide submerging contemporary relics of brand religion; to create a buildup of rust residue on the once pristine objects.

The Icebox Project Space is pleased to announce a FREE call for entries from artists in the greater Philadelphia area born after 1990 (26 and under), and not currently enrolled in a BFA or MFA program. Open to all media and philosophies, juried and curated by Timothy Belknap and Ryan McCartney.

TO APPLY:
-send a message to icebox@cranearts.com with up to 4 files (.jpg, .mov, .wav, etc)
-be sure to include your contact information and please confirm that you meet eligibility requirements
-artists will be notified by May 23rd
-exhibition on view from June 25 through July 16th

In a city as expansive as Philadelphia, our ever-growing arts community is not growing fast enough. The diversity of makers here is not always apparent, and the opportunity to be seen and heard is not always present, especially for those early in their careers. In response to this certain lack, The Icebox Project Space will host LIVE WORK,  specifically focusing on providing a chance for younger artists outside of academic structures to exhibit, with no prohibitive fees or barriers. Providing this platform is meant not only as an act of inclusion, but also as an acknowledgement of the commitment that every artist makes in working and negotiating a space for their practice. Please join us in recognizing more members of our community.


The Icebox Project Space is proud to announce its Sound Residency Series

The Icebox is hosting sound-based artists within the space for periods between a few hours and up to 6 weeks, with a focus on experimentation and exploration of the unique acoustic properties of the Icebox (formerly an enormous walk-in freezer, which accounts for some of its unusual characteristics). At the end of each residency, the Icebox will release a track online and at the end of 2016, we intend to compile the tracks onto an LP, as a sonic document.
