Rainbow in the Dark

If you happen to be in Istanbul this weekend (or if you are lucky to live there), please come to SALT Galata where we present, with my dear friend Galit Eilat - Rainbow in the Dark, which closes this Sunday. An exhibition which takes a post-secular perspective, investigating how contemporary art challenges the outdated opposition between religious and secular societies. It explores the way current art addresses the appeal of rituals, mysticism and the irrational beyond the horizon of modernity. Our guests are: Kader Attia, Fayçal Baghriche, Mirosław Bałka, Fatma Bucak, Köken Ergun, Nilbar Güreş, Jonathan Horowitz, Gülsün Karamustafa, Paweł Kwiek, Virgínia de Medeiros, Mujeres Públicas, Teresa Murak, Walid Raad, Zofia Rydet, Wael Shawky, Slavs and Tatars, Zbigniew Warpechowski, and Artur Żmijewski.
