Location: Philadelphia , PA
Venue: Temple Contemporary
In The Life Raft Debate, a concept originated by the University of Montevallo, we imagine that a massive flood is coming to Philadelphia that threatens to destroy life as we know it. With somehow only one life raft available, eight of the artist collectives in Citywide: A Collective Exhibition will send one representative to make their case for survival to the assembled audience. At the end of the debate, the audience will vote for one collective to climb aboard the life raft, and rebuild our society after the flood. WHO WILL YOU DECIDE TO SAVE?!
The collectives hoping to climb aboard will be Art/Assembly, Basekamp, Grizzly Grizzly, Little Berlin, McCartney/Belknap Projects, Practice, Rebekah Templeton Contemporary Art and Vox Populi. Speaking as the Devil's Advocate will be The Nicola Midnight St.Claire. To reserve your free seat in the boat, visit https://liferaft.eventbrite.com/
