Upcoming Exhibitions

Fatma Bucak | And men turned their faces from there
November 19, 2016 - February 5, 2017

Born in Iskenderun, on the Turkish-Syrian border, Fatma Bucak’s videos, performances, photographs, and installations grapple with borders as spatial, yet often intangible, presences—embodying histories and geographies of iniquity, dispossession, and disenfranchisement.

This exhibition presents a body of new work addressing media censorship, state violence, and the border between Syria and Turkey. Including selections of Bucak’s previous works from the Mexico–U.S. border, the Dakhla refugee camp in Western Sahara, and a conversation on the Turkish-Armenian border, this exhibition is her North American solo-premier.
