BLIND DATES

PRATT MANHATTAN GALLERY
Manhattan Campus
144 W. 14th St. 
Second Floor, Tuesday–Saturday, 11 AM–6 PM

November 19, 2010–February 12, 2011

Artists at the Opening of "Blind Dates" on November 18To create "Blind Dates," co-curators Defne Ayas and Neery Melkonian paired artists and non-artists from areas once controlled by the Ottomans, including what is now modern-day Turkey and Armenia, to go on “blind dates.” 

The “match-making” created encounters between distanced neighbors and their estranged cultures; the exhibition is based on collaborations stemming from these encounters with “otherness.”

For more on the project, please visit the Pratt Manhattan Gallery or www.blinddatesproject.org.
