ROOM TO BREATHE (ART STUDIO)
London, May 2019
The art studio is one of the seven rooms inside Room to Breathe exhibition, it is a space curated by visual artist and educator Dima Karout to host a different artist every month. Each artist made this studio their own, creating art and sharing with the public fragments of the journey they made across many borders – physical, cultural, linguistic – before landing in London.
Through meet-the-artist sessions, educational workshops and participatory artwork, the artists have shared their knowledge and stories with everyone who stepped into their universe. This space has hosted meaningful and sincere conversations and proven that it is always possible to make connections through art. It has brought the artists closer to the public and inspired many people to uncover their creativity.
Belén L. Yáñez is taking up residency in the art studio in The Room to Breathe exhibition from 2 May until 2 June 2019.

London, June 2019
Borderless is a collective art exhibition featuring all of the artists who have taken up residency in the art studio inside of Room to Breathe exhibition at The Migration Museum.
It combines various art mediums and reflects on how the artists transformed their personal experiences in crossing borders into pieces of art, to convey a wider but intimate picture. It also focuses on how, through their art practice, the artists perceived the metaphor of borders, fought against division, and stood up for cultural diversity and inclusion.
Curated by Dima Karout
