CLEANSE is a series of video projections that uses images, messages, color, and light to support collective visual healing in public spaces.
CLEANSE will include images of artwork, animated projections, and films from local artists to encourage dialogue around the push for new collective histories and continued fight for equity and anti-racism in our city.
CLEANSE is a collective idea developed by local artists and cultural workers offering their creative skills and resources to respond to this critical moment.
The CLEANSE team of artists and cultural workers organizing this idea include Michelle Angela Ortiz (“Our Market” Project), Ricardo Rivera (Klip Collective), Paul Farber (Monument Lab), Maori Karmael Holmes (Black Star Film Festival), Nehad Khader (Scribe Video Center), Laura Deutch (PhillyCAM), and Lori Waselchuk (Philadelphia Photo Arts Center). Projections will begin at 9th and Montrose, the former site of the Frank Rizzo mural that was decommissioned and erased by the Mural Arts Program as a gesture towards racial justice.
This series is supported by the Bella Vista Neighborhood Association, Di Brunos, and The Italian Market Business Association.
