Celebrating Artist Felicity Powell with Farmlab Salon Today, Ice Cream+Dance Party Tonight
Our friends at Coolhaus are working with Metabolic Studio (creators of the Not a Cornfield project) to celebrate the work and art of thefirst Chora Prize-winner Felicity Powell tonight. The $50,000 prize honors creativity, and in Powell’s case, the work of her last exhibit Medals of Dishonour, which just ended a run at the British Museum in London. The satirical exhibit featured 13 artists (including Powell as one of artists and co-curator) who created medals that condemned--rather than commemorated--its subjects. Powell will be speaking at a Farmlab Salon today at noon about the exhibit, but there's a bigger party being planned for this eventing.
The studio commissioned the Coolhaus girls to come up with a flavor in her honor. And Coolhaus’s co-founder Natasha Case reveals: “After much deliberation, we came up with a honey pine nut ice cream with a blue swirl, sprinkled with lavender between two sugar cookies. Her edible wrapper has the images of her medals she has designed---so that the sandwich basically resembles a medal,” she says. The wrapper for this sandwich--the Delicity Powel--has been printed with the address, time and details about the dance party to celebrate Powell’s receiving the Chora Prize.
For those who can’t find the truck today, here are the details:
