NAPOLEON is collectively-run project space located in Philadelphia that strives to provide a platform for new work and new ideas.  We are located in the Rollins Building on the edge of Philadelphia’s Chinatown and Callowhill neighborhoods.  The building also houses other galleries such as Vox Populi, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Marginal Utility, Practice and Grizzly Grizzly and is a major hub for Philadelphia’s emerging art scene. For additional information or clarification, please email and view our website to get to know us better.


*On this night, the National Performance Network (NPN) will be kicking off their yearly conference in Philadelphia with an “Art Crawl” through Philadelphia’s Chinatown art spaces.  NPN is a national nonprofit network of artist-centered cultural organizations that present innovative performance and visual art. NPN’s Annual Meeting brings together 350 arts presenters and exhibitors, artists and arts supporters from all over the country and beyond—NPN’s Annual Meeting is one of the few national convenings that brings this group of people together.  NAPOLEON feels this an enormous opportunity for someone emerging in the performance art scene to get his/her work in front of some of the most influential people in the field.
