Baris Gokturk

Baris Gokturk reconstructs two-dimensional historical documents, photographs, and archival imagery about events or individuals overlooked by the mainstream history. Through three-dimensional layers, hybrid fragments, and installations that oscillate between drawing, painting and sculpture, Gokturk rebuilds photographic images as physical surfaces, which he then peels off and reapplies to other found or sculpted objects to draw attention to specific historic moments echoed in current events.

Baris Gokturk has exhibited work at ELM Foundation, Brooklyn; The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem; Pera Museum, Istanbul, among others.

Current Resident: Nov 1, 2021–Apr 30, 2022

Chase Middleton

Chase Middleton depicts a disparate range of scenes: ritualistic gatherings, family dinners, and hallucinatory artifice. Middleton’s work raises uncanniness by presenting the familiar in a division between reality and fantasy. Concerns around class, popular culture, youthful rebellion, and the blurred lines that separate times are woven into the fabric of each carefully constructed narrative.

Chase Middleton has exhibited work at Yancey Richardson, New York; Hyères International Festival, France; and National Photographic Portrait Prize Exhibition, Canberra, among others.
