Exile Is A Hard Job
3/9 – 6/2/2019
Since the 1970s, Nil Yalter has been working as a pioneer of socially engaged and technically advanced art. In painterly collages as well as montages and videos, the Turkish artist integrates photos, drawings, and reports by workers and migrants. Her strong engagement with the topics of feminism, migration, and repression have led to a rediscovery of the eighty-year-old artist by international museums and collections over the past five years. She integrates the voices of the subjects of her works in a unique way and finds a consistently persuasive aesthetic form. In 2019, the Museum Ludwig will now host the Turkish artist’s first major survey exhibition.
The exhibition is organized by the Museum Ludwig in cooperation with the Center for Curatorial Studies, Hessel Museum, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
