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.

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.
