Philadelphia Assembled

Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2016
project news:
Philadelphia Assembled on view
Duration: 2016 - ongoing
Location: Philadelphia
Number of Events:

Philadelphia Assembled is collaborative endeavor with The Philadelphia Museum of Art and collaborators across the city. The project invites change agents throughout the city to collectively imagine a present and future Philadelphia. Developing in two stages, Philadelphia Assembled will be organized around five notions or so called atmospheres of democracy; Reconstructions, Sovereignty, Futures, Sanctuary, and Movement. Each derived from preliminary conversations about the city’s changing landscape.

In the first stage of the project, a series of sites throughout the city will offer installations or events ranging from discussions to community meals that will encourage audiences to share their perspectives on the city, its history, and its future. In its second and culminating phase, the project will move into the Museum’s Perelman Building, where the eight sites will be re-assembled in a participatory and interactive display that will activate the building’s public spaces.
