Felt It Again II @ La Galleria


AN EXHIBITION OF
WEARABLE ART BY
SELCUK GURISIK & ALI ALEV

Dr. Selçuk Gürısık has researched traditional Anatolian felt-making for 28 years. After a long absence, he is back on the New York art scene with a dazzling new exhibition. The show invokes the collective, progressive spirit of the felt-making community. Felt makers’ multimedia techniques merge traditional and contemporary concepts, expressing aspects of post-postmodernism. Adopting a theme of “today creates tomorrow,” this exhibit puts on display the felt-makers’ ultimate ambitions for their art.

The exhibition will also commemorate the memory of Ellen Stewart, the founder and director of the avant-garde theater company La MaMa, and Huseyin Katircioglu, a Turkish Performance artist and founder of Assos Performance Arts Festival. Both had a profound influence over Gurisik’s work and the exhibition simultaneously serves as an homage to the indispensible body of theaterical work that came out of their collaboration together in international theater festivals in Italy, Turkey and the US.
