August 1st: 2015 Philadelphia Mobile Home Rally

 
The Icebox Project Space at Crane Arts is proud to announce the 2015 Philadelphia Mobile Home Rally! This year’s one-day exhibition will be held on August 1st. Following in the footsteps of the popular 2012 and 2014 Philadelphia Pickup Truck Expos, this event promises all of the excitement of seeing dirty, used and abused artist’s pickups as objects of beauty and sites for installation. This years entries will be judged on the concept of “Mobile Home” by jurors Timothy Belknap and Ryan McCartney, directors of the Icebox Project Space. Participants include: Jerry Kaba; Camper Contemporary; Tim Eads; Fantasy Uber; Jim Lint, John Paul Monge, and Sean Stoops; and others.

 

Predictions

Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts

Feeding Speculation is a publication recently released by Tim Belknap and Ryan McCartney, the directors of the Icebox Project Space. At the start of 2015, the Icebox Project Space approached several friends with a simple idea: share a meal with someone, and over the course of conversation arrive at a prediction for the coming week, year, decade or more. A number of people participated, sitting down to dinner with friends, significant others, and family members, whether over a homecooked meal or out at a restaurant. The gamut of ideas that arose from these conversations ranged from predictions for the next day to far into the future, from projections for one’s own life to musings on the fate of the entire world. These predictions were then put into this publication, Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts, which was released at the Second Thursday of February 2015.

August 13th: Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade
Come join us on August’s 2nd Thursday for a special event as part of a cumulative exhibit in the Icebox by the contemporary artist group Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade, a self-described enthusiastic band of artist-musician-culture saboteurs – a most serious collective of prankster/activists. 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, we 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. In a world where contemporary art practices trend towards critical theory and practice, Kali Yuga Zoo Brigade engages the world and its occupants outside of hyper-intellectualized frameworks.

Jesus Benavente is an artist working largely out of New York City. He has performed in both solo and group shows in New York, Texas, and Los Angeles, among other places. Please join us for what promises to be an incredible one-night performance.
