Where: Perelman Building Philadelphia Museum
When: September 9, 2017 - December 10, 2017
Philadelphia Assembled joins art and civic engagement. Shaped by hundreds of collaborators, it tells a story of radical community building and active resistance. Challenging, inspiring, and as big as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?
This project articulates a collective narrative about our city around five principles:
Reconstructions: How do we rewrite our histories?
Sovereignty: How do we define self-determination & unity?
Sanctuary: How do we create safe spaces?
Futures: How do we reimagine our tomorrow?
Movement: How do we share knowledge?
What began in 2013 as conversations and gatherings manifested in spring 2017 as programs, meals, and installations throughout Philadelphia. Now reuniting the works and ideas that emerged in these public actions, Philadelphia Assembled transformed the Perelman Building into a civic stage where the city is performed. The exhibition can be visited till the 10th of December 2017.
