Re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia culminates in the presentation of new performance works by Faustin Linyekula, Marty Pottenger, and Reggie Wilson. Join us on Tuesday April 19th for a reception followed by an in-depth conversation among the three artists, moderated by Talvin Wilks and Lauren Bakst. The conversation will consider memory, history, and place through the lens of the artists’ practices and the works that have emerged from their ongoing dialogue with Philadelphia.

Faustin Linyekula is a dancer, choreographer and self-described storyteller. His new work Philly Files looks at North Philadelphia through movement, storytelling, community, and live music. April 21-23 | 2819 North American Street.
