Video still from OurStory by Beatrice & Lauren Cox
OurStory in Paris and San Francisco
OurStory is a digital iteration of SPACES, which re-imagines the artistic elements at the foundation of SPACES into story-art “duets”, in which an artist uses their creative movement, be it dance, music, or multimedia, to respond to a personal story told by a local resident.
Five duets from OurStory will be presented as part of the In the Banlieues: Oakland/Saint-Denis initiative at a series of exhibitions exploring the banlieues in France and the United States. The first opens on June 15 at Pavillon de l'Arsenal in Paris (running through early September) and the next one on July 21 at SPUR in San Francisco (running through November). Openings in Saint-Denis and Oakland will follow from mid-June to end of December and late August to December respectively.

Scholarship for artist refugees at the 2022 Kaimera Lab
In response to the Russia-Ukraine war* and to so many other conflicts around the world that continue to cause the forced migration of tens of millions without reaching our news feeds, an additional scholarship will be offered specifically to artist refugees to attend the Kaimera Lab 2022.
In addition, this year’s Lab will focus on displacement as the central theme that the participating artists will tackle when creating original material.
