As we approach our 125th anniversary, we’ve been reflecting upon what Fleisher Art Memorial means to us, and what it means to Philadelphia. Creative hub. Starting point. Second wind. Second home. ⁠
⁠
Fleisher is a creative hub where multiple worlds come together. It’s a community space where you can immerse yourself in summer art camps during the day and be transported to a new place through an Indonesian theater production by night.⁠
⁠
As part of this year's 360 Culture Lab programming, Fleisher and Modero & Company presented Di Hati Ku, an original theater production written by Sinta Penyami Storms and Detty Kastubi Aziz and performed in Fleisher's Sanctuary. The cast included members from Philadelphia’s Indonesian community as well as visiting artists from Indonesia, also featuring original music by Profound Music & Saykoji.⁠
⁠
Make a gift today and help Fleisher continue to innovate and present community-driven arts programming.⁠

We are thrilled to see the tremendous response to our upcoming Found in Translation series, which starts next Thursday, November 17!

Each session of Found in Translation: Reading Close: Sonia Sanchez with Yolanda Wisher will do a deep-dive into one of Sanchez’ monumental poems, exploring its making, context, themes, symbolism, music, and impact. Through guest lectures, four local writers will offer their own close readings of the selected poems as well as personal connections to Sanchez’ life and work.

The final installment of Found in Translation: Community Practices within Latinx America will be hosted online on Thurs, Oct 27 (tomorrow evening) at 6:30pm! Joining José Ortiz-Pagán will be guest speaker Sofía Gallisá Muriente.

Sofía Gallisá Muriente is a Puerto Rican visual artist working mainly with video, film, photography and text, mining contemporary cultural institutions and historical sites for evidence of contested and/or contradictory narratives. She earned a BFA in Film at New York University (2008) and has participated in experimental pedagogical platforms led by artists, substituting graduate studies with a collaborative process of learning and unlearning. Through multiple approaches to documentation, her work deepens the subjectivity of historical narratives, examining formal and informal archives, popular imaginaries and oral history.
