Rowhouse Workshop Exhibition Opening Reception
ISA announces "Rowhouse Workshop", an exhibition at Cherry Street Pier, opening with a reception on Friday, June 7, 2019 from 5pm to 8pm. Curated by ISA and supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage, "Rowhouse Workshop" is an interactive exhibition that showcases the unique identities of four rowhouse blocks located in neighborhoods throughout Philadelphia.
The exhibition leads visitors through a series of block installations, providing a window into the life of each of four participating rowhouse blocks through collectively curated songs, recipes, photos and videos. A series of digital and physical media, including drawings, photographs and objects offered by "Rowhouse Workshop" participants will be showcased in totems fabricated by local Philadelphia teenagers through fabrication partner Tiny WPA’s community building program. Project participants will attend the opening event as guest artists, and visitors will be encouraged to contribute to the project through their own self-directed rowhouse workshop.
ISA's "Rowhouse Workshop" will be on view in the Garage Space at Cherry Street Pier from June 7 to June 30, 2019. Developed in and for Philadelphia, "Rowhouse Workshop" aims to create a new platform through which to discuss the future of urban design and rowhouse development in the city.
