Güneş Terkol

SAHA supported for the new project of Güneş Terkol in the exhibition Better Homes at SculptureCenter. 

SAHA Association supported for the new project of Güneş Terkol in the exhibition Better Homes (April – July, 2013) at SculptureCenter in Long Island City, New York. Better Homes brings together a group of artists who examine the construction of the interior through design and homemaking from critical perspectives. As the notion of home shifted in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and interior space was being redefined and redecorated according to the aspirations of modernity, the interior became integral to the construction of the subject. Better Homes is curated by Ruba Katrib, SculptureCenter Curator. The exhibition is accompanied by a publication with a text by Katrib and a contribution by poet Ariana Reines.   Artist List Jonathas de Andrade, Neil Balufa, Keith Edmire, Latoya Ruby Frazer, Robert Gober, Tamar Guimaraes, Anthea Hamilton, Yuki Kimura, Bjarne, Paulina Olowoska, Josephine Pryde, Kristen Pieroth, Carissa Rodriguez, Martha Rosler and Güneş Terkol.
