Like A Dream
Seven leading women artists from Turkey are at the National Museum of Women in the Arts starting from February 12...
The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. is hosting an exhibition, ‘Like a dream... but not Yours: Contemporary Art from Turkey”. Featured are Nevin Aladağ, Selda Asal, Merve Brill, İpek Duben, İnci Eviner, Leyla Gediz, Gülsün Karamustafa, Ceren Oykut, Canan Şenol, Ayça Telgeren and Canan Tolon.
The exhibition, which opens on February 12, is curated by Esra Sarıgedik Öktem. “Regardless of the fact for me that no exhibition of contemporary art can be limited by nation or gender, the existence of a museum dedicated to the works of women artists in the heart of the U.S. capital is an important reality,” says Öktem, who considers the media and socio-political conditions in which we live and sums up the fundamental issue of the exhibition as follows: “The roles that are imposed [on women] and possible overlaps between those roles and a person’s own dreams and ideals...”
The exhibition is sponsored by Akbank and the Turkish-American Business Council of the Board of Foreign Economic Relations. Through 16 May.
