Join us for a discussion with glass artist Felekşan Onar, and writer and curator Arie Amaya-Akkermans on their collaborative exhibition After Utopia: The Birds.
After Utopia: The Birds is an art exhibition that combines modern glass birds—metonyms for refugees—with Aegean area art from the early Hittite through the Byzantine periods. The exhibit is on view from September 10, 2022 to February 28, 2023 at the Sadberk Hanım Museum in Istanbul, Türkiye.
In addition, they have created a modern multilingual play based on Aristophanes’s Birds and Homer’s Odyssey. The play has been filmed using an international cast.
This event presents a recording of the performance, a tour of the Sadberk Hanım Museum and a conversation with the curator and artist.
