Event "IHP will hold its first silent fine art auction hosted by featuring a wide variety of 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.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit IHP’s arts program, and will ensure that the institution continues to bring the best of art and culture to the Philadelphia area.
