Join Darian Razdar, RC graduate in the class of 2018, and Clem Turner, BFA graduate in the class of 2018, 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 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. Clem Turner turns Darian Razdar's thesis research and analysis into an interactive experience via audiovisual technology & installation. Come to immerse yourself in Belleville, Paris's most singular neighborhood.
