In July 2015, CULTURUNNERS presented a weeklong community program in Detroit, featuring exhibitions, talks and performances organized by New York-based Iranian curators, Lila Nazemian and Ava Ansari (Associate Curator, Edge of Arabia US Tour).

Artists Peyman Shafieezadeh (Iran), traveling to the U.S. for the first time, and Sara Ouhaddou (Morrocco), were invited to produce new bodies of site specific work which were exhibited at Redbull House of Arts and installed on the RV and streets in Downtown Detroit.

“CULTURUNNERS’ cross cultural efforts [form] a groundbreaking and important model for expanding our understanding, serves as outreach for a new and real form of cultural exchange, and offers international artists a platform to further their practice. It is an artist residency on wheels combined with the idea of the mythological American road trip, exposing its passengers to the vastness of the American continent. It organically intersects with societal and cultural diversities, and provides an immensely fruitful and rewarding creative exchange and platform for exposure to participating international artists.”

Sara Ouhaddou, Artist
