About the exhibition: Whatever you call them – banlieues, peripheries, suburbs – the In the Banlieues/Centering the Margin: Oakland/Saint-Denis international exhibition highlights the symbolic pivot from the center to the periphery. Artistic movements, social struggles, urban innovations: Oakland, California and Saint-Denis, France are today exerting their influence and inventing solutions to the challenges posed by equity and the rapid urban development of metropolitan areas.
The exhibition is co-produced by the Villa Albertine in San Francisco and California Humanities, in partnership with the Pavillon de l’Arsenal, SPUR San Francisco, Oakstop, and la Maison des Sciences de l’Homme Paris Nord; with the support of the foundation 836M, l’Institut Français, la Fondation Art Explora; in collaboration with the cities of Oakland and Saint-Denis, Périféeries and with the participation of ARTE.
