04/21/2015 IAS faculty members Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas participated in "Strange Coupling 2015." Strange Coupling is a UW Seattle student-run collaborative event that pairs current students and professional artists in a creative dialogue. The pairings were created by jurors (Scott Lawrimore & Eric Fredericksen), with each "strange couple" having approximately two months to create a collaborative work that will be exhibited May 7th in Seattle. The goal of the project is to foster a tighter knit community in Seattle and promote the collaborative process which is underrepresented in today's culture. IAS faculty Aeron Bergman and Alejandra Salinas were invited to collaborate with student Hami Bahadori.
