Icebox Project Space
Crane Arts Building

Philadelphia, PA 19122
Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, the exhibitions will only be accessible by the Penn community for by-invitation visitation only.

Double Feature is just that—two successive exhibitions that use the same space and framework. In April and May, the Weitzman School at the University of Pennsylvania will open the thesis exhibitions for the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 in the MFA program in the Department of Fine Arts. The exhibitions will be installed at the Icebox Project Space at the Crane Arts building at 1400 North American Street in Philadelphia. The Class of 2020 will be on view from April 25 through May 7 and the class of 2021 will be on view May 14 through 27. 

The program follows the same premise as a double-bill: each exhibition is a unique and independent presentation, shown back-to-back. In a year without movie theaters, the title felt appropriate.

Class of 2020:
Austin Fisher, Jane Fentress, Evan Curtis Charles Hall, Jessi Ali Lin, Rebecca Naegele, Valentina Soto Illanes, Julian Zeidler, Kyuri Jeon, Emmanuela Soria Ruiz, Xinyi Hu, David Johnson, Lesia Mokrycke, Joseph Harley Painter, Tessa Stewart, and Sonnie Wooden

Exhibition Curator:
Yuri Stone is a curator based in Washington, D.C. He is the Assistant Curator at Glenstone Museum in Potomac, Maryland where he works with artists to realize exhibitions, publications, and long-term outdoor installations. 

There will an online presentation of the work as well; this page will be updated when the virtual gallery is live.
