We are proud to announce Thinking of You, a solo exhibition by Turkish artist, Fırat Neziroğlu in the C24 Atrium. The opening reception will be on Thursday, May 18th from 6-8:00PM, and will be on view through July 14th, 2023.

Celebrated throughout Turkey and Europe for his unique takes on a traditional practice, this will be the first time his work has been exhibited in the US. Utilizing hand-spun, custom-dyed wool, Fırat Neziroğlu reinterprets the centuries-old art form of Kilim rug making with contemporary images and content. With a patented technique that allows for loosely hanging and three-dimensional components, he creates portraits of his closest friends, beautiful, intimate celebrations of life and love. Working from memory, without reference drawings, he incorporates bold colors and unlikely subjects into striking, one-of-a-kind, textured compositions.

As we continue to champion artists who explore questions of identity through a broader cultural and historical lens, we are excited to share the complex and nuanced work presented by this international collection of voices.
