This exhibition is composed of a solo show of the work of artist Joshua Dylan Rubin in Brooklyn and a workshop dialogue between Rubin and artist Gözde Kirksekiz in Istanbul, Turkey, moderated by curator and artist, Anne Murray. The exhibition will take place in a Brooklyn studio, while the dialogue will take place through the Cloud between the artists on a digital platform. This conversation will be a part of a workshop where visitors will be invited to join the discussion, observe the work of Rubin, and discuss with him and Kirksekiz through a Skype call, the current issues that they address in their work about sexism, racism, and xenophobia and how are they different or the same in respect to the current political environments in both of their countries. They will be asked, specifically, to address the relationship between the creation of this type of daring and insightful work and the interpretation of it as civil disobedience in Turkey and acceptable dogma in the United States. This exhibition and conversation is a part of Cloud Conversations, which is curated by Anne Murray, bringing together artists from around the world in conversation to inspire new work and to influence the world towards positive change through art.
