Using the Clemente Sato Velez Center and its presence in New York's Lower East Side as a point of departure, Performing Coordinates: Cityscapes Revised investigates the performance of our individual identities upon the layered physical spaces we inhabit. The LES is the neighborhood in which new immigrants to NY have settled and where today hipsters, scenesters, artists and young professionals lay claim to the stories, cultures and peoples that define this contested territory. Performing Coordinates seeks to re-envision the cartography of the city as a palimpsest of histories that engage and affect the people who occupy it.
