MOPA to host international CEC ArtLinks Fellow
MOPA is excited to announce it will be working with the CEC ArtLinks organization in New York to host an international photography fellow from Kyrgyzstan.
Elyor Nematov will arrive at MOPA in October 2016 and work with the Department of Visual Learning through November. His work focuses on important human interest stories, particularly issues surrounding migrant workers. He will be merging his perspective from another part of the world with what is happening here in San Diego and directly across the border into Baja.
ArtsLink Residencies offers artists and arts managers from 37 overseas countries five-week residencies at non-profit arts organizations throughout the U.S. The program enables artists and communities across the U.S. to share artistic practices with artists and arts managers from abroad and engage in dialogue that advances understanding across cultures.
This partnership is another example of MOPA’s commitment to international endeavors.
