CASH MONEY at the Proposition Tent
First Friday May 3rd, 7pm–10pm
North 11th and Carlton Streets
(Between Wood and Callowhill Streets, across from Vox Populi and The Trestle Inn) (map)
The Proposition Tent combines a range of compelling ideas rooted in the local Philly neighborhoods and the international stage. And it provides a chance to shake up the format for what an art show can be and who can be in it. The Proposition Tent isn’t just an art show—it is a convivial space for the communication of ideas.
CASH MONEY explores the idea that financial systems possess a malleable form. Money and finance can be shaped to do different things like artwork. Features work by Julieta Aranda and Anton Vidokle of e-flux; Miranda July; Paul Glover; South Philly Co-op; and a statement by Antanas Mockus, former mayor of Bogota, which will be read aloud by Ariel Vasquez.
The Proposition Tent will appear each First Friday from May to July 2013. This monthly one-night-only laboratory and social space features propositions on a theme by four sets of participants: a local artist, an international artist, a local business or non-profit, and the words of a thinker/philosopher. Upcoming themes: Pizza (June) and Sweet Lovin’ (July).
