Philadelphia Assembled

Through Sunday, December 10
Presented by Philadelphia Museum of Art

Art Community Parkway District

The first exhibition of its kind at the Museum, Philadelphia Assembled joins art and civic engagement. Initiated by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk, together with hundreds of collaborators from across the city, the project explores Philadelphia’s changing landscape and tells a story of active resistance and radical community building. Challenging, inspiring, and as expansive as the city, Philadelphia Assembled asks: how can we collectively shape our futures?

Artists, makers, storytellers, gardeners, healers, activists, and other community members will work together to explore social issues that resonate in “The City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection.” Within this project, these urgent concerns are organized around five principles:

Reconstructions: How can we rewrite histories?
Sovereignty: How can we share resources?
Futures: How can we reimagine our tomorrow?
Sanctuary: How can we create safe spaces?
Movement: How can we share knowledge and stories?
Come. Listen. Participate. Share.In spring 2017, Philadelphia Assembled will take shape as a series of actions, conversations, meals, installations, and other events throughout the city. What we build together will culminate in a communal presentation at the Museum’s Perelman Building in September 2017.
