What is an Auntsforcamera? If it sounds like something that began in Brooklyn, you are correct! Where else would they come up with a name like that?
It comes from AUNTS, which is a community of artists and a choreographic structure for organizing numerous performances and activities in shared spaces. If it sounds like its combining several worlds of yours into one exhibition, you get it.
