Until August 29 at Galerie C.O.A

Back in April, I interviewed Alina Maizel of Studio Béluga about their exciting contest, Possible Dimensions. Well, they have chosen their winners: Miles Greenberg, an installation and performance artist from Montreal, and Olya Krasavina, a Russian-born illustrator. With help from Studio Béluga and its collaborators, including Faux-Cadres Canal, they have created their “dream projects,” which will be on display until August 29.
