Slow Sunday at the ICA !

Black Floor Gallery and the PBMA are hosting track events at the Institute of Contemporary Art on Sunday March 18.
"Slow Sunday" a spin off the Cadence Fast Friday out in Seattle will be from 2-5pm.

The memebers of Black Floor Gallery have constructed a 12'x24' mini black floor platform that sits on the first floor of the Art Museum. A part of the show entitled "Locally Localized Gravity" the platform has housed all the events Black Floor has scheduled between the opening of the show on Jan. 19 (where the famed band "Japanther" performed) and through the end on March 25. This will also be where all the bikers will be competing, if you fall off you lose!

The 6 co-founders of Black Floor quickly became part of the cycling culture upon moving to Philadelphia in 2003. Since the beginning of their ventures in starting the gallery, cyclists have always been a part of the community. The last day of Locally Localized Gravity at the ICA will mark the LAST DAY FOR THE EXISTENCE OF BLACK FLOOR AS WE KNOW IT! Because of this, the founders wanted to pack the schedule full with many events including things that are not necessarily considered "art." Giving back to the cycling/messenger community they are hosting track bike events including:

Track Stands
Backward Circles
and Foot Down

We want this to be a fun event and all those participating will be on stage inside a contemporary art museum! This will probably not happen many times in life so we are expecting to have a GREAT time! Depending on how many people show up, we may have to run the events in heats.

The PBMA is supporting and helping run the event. Prizes will be given to the all winners from Cadence, Fabric Horse, Reload Bags, Gerikmade, Jetsetter, and more.

Come out and help make this event one to be remembered!

Please contact with any questions.
