The SPACES Artist in Residence Program at the Village of Arts and Humanities on Germantown Avenue debuts its first international artist residency this Friday, December 9th. From 6 to 10 p.m. it hosts an exhibition opening party with musical guests Killiam Shakespeare.

SPACES is debuting installations by Olanrewaju Tejuoso, an artist who hails from Nigeria, and Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh from Ghana. Keeping up their tradition of pairing artists with community members for creative collaboration, both Tejuoso and Ohene-Ayeh are working with high school students from the Fairhill-Hartranft neighborhood. In addition, Philadelphia collective Killiam Shakespeare is performing during an open mic segment at the opening. The group released their mixtape Killiam Season 1 in late August, and they are known for breaking down the boundaries of genres like hip-hop, R&B, jazz and funk.

The event is free; more information about the opening on Facebook. Check out the track “Steph Curry” off Killiam Season 1 below.
