This exhibition highlights the results of an international exchange between CCA students and students at the Istanbul Bilgi University in Turkey. It features the works of artists investigating current and historical perceptions concerning culture and identity in everyday life and their complex relationship to artistic and cultural production. Issues under examination include the representation of space -- both physical and psychological -- as well as public space (urban fabric) versus private space (memory and history).
