Philadelphia, PAPhillyBite Shitholes Exibition - "Shitholes" is a one-day-only art gallery on September 28, 2018, in Philadelphia, PA brought to you by Le Chapeau Project, an organization that curates and organizes temporary exhibitions around the world to promote emerging and unknown contemporary artists not often showcased in typical galleries.


Founders Fatène Ben-Hamza (currently Casablanca, Morocco) and Steve Garguilo (currently Ciudad Juárez, Mexico), both living in migration frontiers some depict as “Shitholes,” want to challenge the current negative narrative spreading across the globe by showcasing the brilliant work of artists from these so-called “Shithole” regions. The goal is to give people a sense of what "Shitholes" really are and to showcase fantastic work coming from these places.

The exhibit will showcase contemporary artists (incl. photographers, painters, sculptors) from at least 15 countries, including Haiti, Mauritius, Mexico, Morocco, Tanzania, and Tunisia.

The exhibit will take place at The Adrienne Theater near Rittenhouse Square. The exhibit spaces will be open from 10:00am-7: 00 pm, and from 5:30pm-7: 00 pm we will live music and poetry performances, as well as a few additional surprises.
