Protocinema presents Of Our Own Making, a series of single channel videos by Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme, Hera Büyüktaşcıyan, Vajiko Chachkhiani, Lara Ögel, Ahmet Öğüt, Hale Tenger, and Theo Triantafyllidis.
Projected in SculptureCenter’s outdoor courtyard, at 8:30pm on Thursday, July 11, the works of these artists reflect voices and concerns of their regions as well as offering empathy towards shared universal experiences.
Of Our Own Making highlights themes of constraints of constructed urban life and psychological impacts of societal developments - ancient, historical and forthcoming - from multiple perspectives.
The program is co-organized by Protocinema’s Executive Director, Mari Spirito, in collaboration with Asli Seven, independent curator and researcher based in Istanbul and Paris. Featured artists have received or are currently working on future Site-aware commissions, Protocinema’s international program.
This screening is free.
