Rocky (Re)Runs, Andrew Hart, Ken Jacobs, and John James Pron

Hosted at DVAA, April 18th - 29th

Organized by John James Pron, Andrew Hart and Ken Jacobs, this exhibition will use the 1976-2006 Rocky Balboa film series and its settings to examine the presence and absence of change in what are now called Philadelphia’s “middle neighborhoods,” areas that are generally affordable, attractive, and offer a reasonable quality of life, but may be in danger of decline.  The show’s participants will return to Rocky’s world as film viewers and artists, perhaps to memorialize a lost past, document a fluid present, or design for an unknowable future.
