FRESH PRODUCE: All New, All August, All Art
This August, The Fridge will host the 2nd annual FRESH PRODUCE featuring six D.C.-based collectives including Panda Head, EMP Collective and VESTIBULE, with 30 individual artists (and growing) such as DECOY, Asad “ULTRA” Walker, Joseph Hale, Tim Conlon and HKS181.The Fridge is showing art from all creative disciplines including a piece that participating artist Josef Palermo describes as, “an experience that will transcend any fixed notion of our understanding of medium.”
FRESH PRODUCE is a one-month, packed chance to access the breadth and depth of the D.C. arts scene. The project is anchored by a new group show from The Fridge featuring our signature inside look at the D.C. graffiti world – STREET MARKET, featuring work from artists including ASTROTWITCH, HKS181, Asad “ULTRA” Walker, DECOY, JAZI-ROCK, EXACTLY, JEA Alexander Medina, Lidio Aries, ANEIKAN, CRI and Tim Conlon.
