7 Turkish Artists engages the social themes that define contemporary Turkey, specifically examining the imagery of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, its revolutionary leader after World War I. Between 1997 and 2010, artists Zakari and Mandel, one Turkish, one American, chronicle their experiences photographing people, secular and Western, or religious and conservative in appearance. They conducted interviews and collected found material from archives, gathering popular historical illustrations and found Atatürk postcards that span a thirty year period and illustrate the cult status of his image. The artists' recent book, The State of Ata, seeks to recognize the complex relationship in Turkey between secularists, the Islamist movement and military power.

Threefold: Selections from the Indie Photobook Library

Curated by Larissa Leclair, Shane Lavalette, and George Slade

September 13 - November 12, 2011
Reception: Wednesday, September 21, 6:30 - 8 pm

When you think about photographs, when you imagine them in context, realized in some physical form, how do you see them? Some see them in print portfolio boxes, some see them on computer screens, others see them matted and framed, hanging on walls. Though for nearly as long as there have been photographs, they have appeared in fixed sequences, pasted, printed directly, or reproduced in ink on pages bound together in some fashion - in other words, as books. Whether pocket-sized or table-sized, photographically-illustrated books have long served as an important showcase for the medium.

Threefold reflects the idiosyncratic interests of three curators - Shane Lavalette, Larissa Leclair, and George Slade - each adopting a unique focal point in an attempt to represent a remarkable moment in contemporary independent publishing.
