Through the ongoing Center-funded project re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia, Painted Bride Art Center presents Stamped Stomped Stumped, a new work by choreographer and Guggenheim Fellow Reggie Wilson. Developed while in residency at the Painted Bride with a group of Philadelphia-based dancers, including Pew Fellow Germaine Ingram, Wilson's work will examine the performative aspects of religious worship and the spiritual landscape of Philadelphia.

Built on a foundation of public dialogue and interaction, re-PLACE-ing Philadelphia uses art as a lens for viewing the city and its history. The 20-month project presents a series of performances, artworks, lectures, readings, and conversations that respond to the city and create forums for new ideas.
