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, 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.

Fundraiser in support of upcoming show “Unlisted”
Saturday, July 30th 2:00 PM
$10 – $40 sliding scale
Join us for food and beverages provided by Icebox Project Space and Marginal Utility. This event will help support the upcoming show in August:
August 11th – September 10th
Unlisted will be a unique opportunity to bring together curators from across the city in an environment that encourages unexpected comparisons and cross-links. The Icebox will be divided into 13 areas, one for each participating curator, with some areas being more advantageous for floor or ceiling works, some better for 2D, and all creating a greater conversation.
Organized in collaboration with Yuka Yokoyama and David Dempewolf.
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.
