OPEN HOUSE PARTY Sat 6pm - 9pm              

A two-day showcase of local indie fashion, emerging arts, and DIY retail. This exhibition will activate three empty storefronts and transform them into the following:

  • The Study by Birds of a Pleather — a hub designed by the Birds of a Pleather collective (formerly with Worn Magazine) for taking a pseudo-sociological look at bringing communities together via identity, as examined through the lens of fashion and the way we present ourselves externally
  • The Pantry — the official pop-up shop of #DCRESIDENCE, starring local DIY retailers selling swag ranging from hoodies and bags by DECOY, to boozy baked goods from Crunkcakes
  • The Icebox by The Fridge — featuring a special exhibition called Leftovers and curated by Alex Goldstein, gallery director for The Fridge
"The Fridge is proudly showcasing a visual tour of their past three years at The Icebox as part of the #DCRESIDENCE @DCWEEK. Alex’s "Leftovers" have been building up in the back of The Fridge and now make up an awe-inspiring visual timeline of the exhibits and performances that have been poppin’ off within their walls since September 2009. Revisit some of your favorite pieces by DECOY, Scot Lefavor, BORF (John Tsombikos), Laura Elkins, Mark Jenkins & Tim Conlon, Ben Tolman, The Sweater Set, Bluebrain, Marshall Allen & the Vertical Dogs, Jason Ajemian & the High Life, Kiran Gahndi, and hundreds more. Learn of the interesting characters that have played either brief or vital roles at the Fridge since its conception. Bring kids along to peruse as we open The Fridge doors. Exclusive merchandise plus a week-long silent auction on select original pieces "left over" from The Fridge’s 2010’s solo exhibit: DECOY INK will be available as well. Free and open to the public. All ages welcomed."
