What’s happening:
By now we hope you know that Ice Cube Gallery is moving to an exciting new arts community, “Concept”, being developed at 6601 Colorado Blvd. We expect our new building to be ready for occupancy by March or April 2017.

In anticipation of our pending grand opening next spring we have a VERY FUN pop-up event that will take place September 30, on the open farmland that is to become the Concept arts compound at 6601 Colorado Blvd. While ground has not yet been broken on the two buildings going up, we just can’t wait to introduce you to our new location!

There will be a two-part show where we’ll host the No Show Museum’s exhibit “Nothing Is Impossible” in a refurbished european postal bus that was shipped here to the states (!!) alongside an exhibit of artworks by Concept studio artists, entitled “Anything Is Possible” on display within the temporary space of a 53-foot semi truck. Read on for more information…

About Concept’s Inaugural Event and its exhibit “Anything is Possible”
Concept Colorado is a new and dynamic 11-acre art complex being developed on the edge of Denver by Jeanie Nuanes King, a long time Denver arts advocate, developer and artist. The project, located in Commerce City, will offer art studios, galleries, food and other amenities; and eventually live/work spaces. The project directly addresses space concerns related to escalating real estate prices, that have impacted and displaced many in Denver’s creative community.  Concept Colorado will provide clean, new, affordable and economically stable long-term space for artists and creative businesses – with rents as low as $1 a square foot. Ms. King is especially interested in the community-building aspects of the project, and appreciates Commerce City leaders for their support of her vision and their belief in the value of the arts community. Ground breaking is expected in early autumn.

Come out and “meet the space!”
To kick off the development, festivities are planned for the evening of September 30, 2016 from 4:00-9:00. A pop-up exhibit of the “No Show Museum,” which has traveled extensively through Europe, has been shipped to the U.S. and is now on tour, making stops in Canada, various locations throughout the country (including one stop in Colorado at Concept) and on into Mexico. It’s current show “Nothing is Impossible,” features a collection of works and documents from over 120 renowned international artists of the 20th and 21st centuries. Conceptual artist Andreas Heusser curated the exhibit and will offer an artist’s talk during the evening of September 30, at 6:00 pm. In conjunction, art by Concept Colorado studio artists, entitled “Anything is Possible” will be on display within the temporary space of a 53-foot semi truck. Food, music and other interesting activities will accompany this collaborative show and all ages are welcome.  

Don’t miss this exciting event, which begins a new and inspiring journey for the Denver metro visual arts community!  Concept Colorado is located in Commerce City, at 6601 Colorado Boulevard.

About the No Show Museum and its exhibit “Nothing is Impossible”

“A breathtaking journey to the most remote regions of thinking“

Following the success of last year‘s European tour with around 30 exhibitions in 20 countries and a closing show at the 56. Biennale di Venezia, the NO SHOW MUSEUM is on tour across America from August to October 2016, including pop-up exhibitions in art venues and galleries.

For its only stop in Denver, the No Show Museum will be hosted by Ice Cube Gallery.

Andreas Heusser, Curator of the No Show Museum, will guide viewers through the exhibition during its September 30 reception, and give an illuminating introduction (lecture performance) to the art of nothing.

The NO SHOW MUSEUM is the world’s first museum devoted to nothing and its various manifestations throughout the history of art. Its collection includes works and documents from over 120 renowned international artists of the 20th and 21st centuries, among them, Marina Abramovic, Joseph Beuys, Daniel Buren, Maurizio Cattelan, Marcel Duchamp, Hans Haacke, Yves Klein, Piero Manzoni, Gianni Motti, Robert Rauschenberg, Man Ray, Robert Ryman, Richard Serra, Santiago Sierra, Andy Warhol and Rémy Zaugg.

The NO SHOW MUSEUM has a mobile presentation space in a converted postal car. It currently hosts a special exhibition entitled “Nothing is impossible“ with a selection of impossible artworks by 22 international artists. The mobile museum has been shipped from Europe to America and will be installed at Ice Cube Gallery’s new location at 6601 Colorado Blvd. All ages are welcome.
