Recently, some of our Fellows have been in the news doing great things: Maria Magdalena Campos Pons's Rios Intermitentes at the Havana Biennial was named one of the "Top 15 Exhibitions Around the World" by Hyperallergic. Amitis Motevalli's multimedia work Golestan Revisited received a coveted Creative Capital Award. Daniel Canogar's solo exhibition Surge opened this month at the Minnesota Street Project's Bitforms Gallery in San Francisco. Each of these artists spent time in the creatively inspiring environment of our residency.
