curated by Ulya Soley

Opening January 10, 2020, Protocinema will present How shall we dress for the occasion?, a group exhibition curated by Ulya Soley with artists Deniz Tortum, Kathryn Hamilton, Chulayarnnon Siriphol and Pınar Yoldaş at 601Artspace, New York, mentored by Mari Spirito within Protocinema Emerging Curator Series. How shall we dress for the occasion? focuses on the relationship between mortality and extinction, and increasing obsessions with future scenarios. While technology is getting better at predicting the future, this knowledge falls short to assuage the constant confrontation of the growing impacts of climate crisis, global politics and economy. Selected and commissioned works address questions that arise as the same tools that mark our progress hasten our collapse. 601Artspace partners with artists, curators and other not-for-profit organizations to produce unconventional exhibitions, located at 88 Eldridge St, New York, NY 10002, United States.
