It’s that time of year again. After six months of pondering, exploring and expressing the theme of “wandering,” the 27 members of Makor’s Artists-in-Residence program have created works that will be presented in the seventh Biannual Makor Marathon. As the event is a multimedia, multidisciplinary festival of visual and performing arts, its theme seems appropriate: Makor’s home, the Steinhardt Building, is being sold, and this will be the last Biannual Marathon held in the facility. Makor, which is a program offered at the 92nd Street Y, will be housed in a temporary location (as yet undetermined) for an estimated three to five years, and eventually will move to the Y’s Lexington Avenue headquarters on the Upper East Side.

The marathon includes dance, music, performance, theater, gallery shows, installations, video projections, panel discussions and workshops. The works examine culture, creation, myth and exile. In addition, special guest Itamar Kubovy, executive director of Pilobolus Dance Theatre, will discuss the company’s history, mission and creative process. There also will be panel discussions moderated by art professionals.

Makor, 35 W. 67th St.; June 4, 12 p.m.-6 p.m.; $12 in advance, $15 at the door. (212-601-1000 or www.makor.org)
