Living Room: A curatorial room for access to art and culture in Guignard School of Art
Living Room is an extension project that promotes the engagement of students, technical and administrative staff and faculty members of Guignard School of Art. It started, initially by students, in 2015, proposing experimentation of curating art and culture practices.
