Citywide is coming! Want some BBQ? Want some ice cream?

NAPOLEON would like to announce its participation in CITYWIDE:

A Collective Exhibition, happening this Fall!

Joining forces in a massive collaboration this coming November, over 25 artist collectives in Philadelphia are banding together for a cross-collaborative multi-venue exchange to celebrate the impressive population our city has of artist-run entities!  This month-long celebration of Philadelphia contemporary art that will include performances, panel  discussions, gallery openings, and a publication in a variety of venues across the city.   The essence of CITYWIDE is about magnifying individual voices through collective action and we at NAPOLEON are thrilled to be a part of this!

CITYWIDE is the recipient of a 2013 Knight Arts Challenge grant and is organized collaboratively by Vox Populi, Space 1026, Little Berlin, Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Grizzly Grizzly, Marginal Utility, NAPOLEON, Fjord, Mt. Airy Contemporary Artists Space, Rebekah Templeton, Highwire Gallery, Basekamp, McCartney/Belknap Projects, Practice, The Traction Company, InLiquid, Paradigm Gallery, Magic Pictures, Termite TV Collective, The Soapbox, Title Magazine, The Nicola Midnight St. Claire, Pterodactyl, Art/ Assembly and BYO Print.   Spanning from the Callowhill neighborhood on the edge of Center City to West Philly, from Germantown to the Northeast and from South Philly to Kensington, CITYWIDE represents over 200 artists in total!

NAPOLEON would like to announce its exchange partner for this event, Traction Company.  In this exchange, Traction Company will be exhibiting in the small gallery at NAPOLEON in Chinatown and NAPOLEON will do an installation on the premises of Traction’s West Philadelphia location.  More information about this exchange will come soon, but in the meantime, we can say that each exhibition will be dealing with shifts of scale and size.
