EXHIBITIONS

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
Public Reception: 6–8 PM Thursday, November 18

To 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.
