Join Darian Razdar & Clem Turner as they present their collaborative thesis project, "Locating Belleville", in the RC Gallery for 4 days in the month of May. This pop-up gallery exhibits first-hand research conducted by Darian Razdar in Belleville--a working-class and immigrant neighborhood in northeastern Paris. Belleville is a space of immense complexity; the words migration, gentrification, activism, community, diversity, and struggle just begin to characterize Belleville.
