Join artist and DJ Juliana Huxtable and Philadelphia-based sound and performance art duo SCRAAATCH for an evening of frayed binaries, deconstructed soundscapes, and experimental club dynamics.

Meet your friends for delicious snacks from Manakeesh and refreshing HubBub Coffee; then relive the night’s ambiance with free take home photo booth selfies.

The galleries will be open late (until 9pm) and ICA guides will be on hand to navigate the nightlife.
