This is the first major solo show by Gülsün Karamustafa (Ankara, 1946) in Spain. And an excellent opportunity to familiarize ourselves with the work of arguably the most internationally acclaimed living Turkish artist and one of the most unique voices in contemporary art.
Where is Our Place?
The Where is Our Place? exhibition grew out of an interest in striking up a dialogue, in forging a connection and affinity between the collections of IVAM and of MAXXI, Rome. With this goal in mind, we have brought together a group of works from the collection of the Italian museum (Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Francis Alys, Jana Sterbak, Mario Merz, Alfredo Jaar, Kara Walker, William Kentridge, Atelier Van Lieshout and Teddy Cruz) with some major works from the IVAM collection (Bruce Nauman, Gabriele Basilico and Richard Hamilton). Their common ground is a concern with the inhabited and social space, a questioning of the city, the home, the community, or the personal sanctuary.
One of the IVAM’s core working lines over these last six years is grounded in an intense desire to see, discover, build and develop new narratives about the social, cultural, artistic and even personal and/or affective relationships between the different countries bordering the Mediterranean area.
