Cohabitation Strategies was granted a fellowship at Montalvo Art Center‘s Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP). LAP is designed to offer artists from a range of disciplines an environment conducive to individual and collaborative creative practice. Seeking to stimulate an energetic exchange of ideas between culturally diverse Fellows and across varied artistic fields and scholarly disciplines, the residency has earned international recognition as a model of curatorial practice supporting the development of new and challenging contemporary work.

Cohabitation Strategies co-founders, Emiliano Gandolfi, Lucia Babina, Gabriela Rendón and Miguel Robles-Durán used this incredible opportunity to collectively work on a book proposal. The upcoming book, Seven Short Stories on Cohabitation Strategies, will commemorate the organization’s 10 years of practice.

During Cohabitation Strategies’ co-founders staying at Montalvo a number of discussions, exchanges and activities were organized by LAP to disseminate their work and engage fellow residents and the community of Silicon Valley.
