International House Philadelphia is pleased to announce its inaugural arts benefit and you are invited! On September 12th, IHP will hold its first silent fine art auction hosted by Paddle8.com featuring a wide variety of exceptional artists (from all over the world), drinks, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and last but not least, a live performance and collaboration between the internationally acclaimed Zola Jesus & JG Thirlwell. A musician who straddles the Goth-rock and lo-fi genres incorporating a blend of orchestral instrumentals, ambient electronic sounds and strong diva-esque vocals, Zola Jesus has developed a collaboration with JG Thirlwell, an Australian composer and pioneer of the No Wave and industrial music scenes. Thirlwell has also collaborated with Coil, Sonic Youth, Nurse With Wound, Nick Cave, Lydia Lunch, and Nine Inch Nails. He has arranged the music of Zola Jesus for electronics and a string quartet.

Help IHP, Philadephia’s premier resource for film, continue its tradition of avant-garde and culturally exploratory programming by attending its first arts program benefit. Proceeds from the evening will benefit IHP’s arts program specifically, and will ensure that our institution continues to bring the best of moving image culture and art to the Philadelphia area.
