Lived Experiences

Bolo | Julius John Alam | Vered Snear

curated by Atif Sheikh

Lived Experiences brings together three artists - Bolo (artist duo Saks Afridi and Qinza Najm), Julius John Alam, and Vered Snear whose recent works revolve around performances of lived experiences of 'other'. The works each bring attention to the resultant 'borders' between entities - or even between states of being, and all seem to be motivated at least in part by social activism, while leaving any political or moral statements less clear. Some of the pieces have been presented in different places within different formats, but in every case the works are process-based with important elements of the affect coming from that process.
 
Opening with the artists May 19 6:30 pm
 
Lived Experiences will be on view from May 19 - June 15, 2016. Gallery hours are Wed - Sat: 11-5 and by appointment. For additional information please visit http://twelvegatesarts.org/exhibitions/livedexperiences

What has been accomplished in the first five years of Philadelphia's groundbreaking Green City, Clean Waters program? What's in store for the next five years?

Philadelphia Water will be discussing those topics and marking a major Green City, Clean Waters achievement—meeting the program’s five-year pollution-reduction targets—at Fishtown’s Lutheran Settlement House (LSH) during the neighborhood’s Sustainability First Friday gathering on Friday, June 3 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Members of our Public Engagement team will be at the site’s community garden/farm with a model that shows how green stormwater infrastructure works, and students from the after school program will be learning all about water systems and sustainability.
 
First Friday-goers are invited to join in, and we’ll have special Green City, Clean Waters cards that let you show your support for protecting our rivers with green investments in a fun way. 
 
As the Green City, Clean Waters cards accumulate, they’ll be shared through social media and will eventually be added to a larger temporary photo montage at the Fairmount Water Works.
