This catalogue and exhibition is a result of a Humanities & Sciences Department Diversity Program and interdisciplinary course “Locality & Global Discourse,” an exchange between California College of the Arts in San Francisco taught by Mariella Poli, and Marmara University, Faculty of Fine Arts in Istanbul, Turkey taught by Prof. Dr. Inci Denis Ilgin.

The purpose of this exchange was to research the historical developments and urban renewal of the two respective cities and specifically explore the geopolitical and cultural heritage in designated neighborhoods.

Further connections were then developed between the two very different cities as the visual dialogue between the two groups of students occurred in this catalog. Global issues of locality, culture, displacement and identity surfaced, which then connected the obvious threads of commonality. Our attempt was to make visual the specifics and uniqueness of place while allowing for similarities to bridge our individual experience.
