Join us for the opening of 2017 ICP-Bard MFA candidate Gülsüm Kavuncu’s solo exhibition, When I Dance in Disorder, at the ICP-Bard MFA Studios in Long Island City, on view from May 5 to 6.

When I Dance in Disorder is an exhibition of photographs and video by Gülsüm Kavuncu. The title is taken from the band The Do, and it refers to her chaotic life experience in Istanbul. As a response to this chaos, Kavuncu’s work creates quiet atmospheres through color and form, representing her sensitivity to textures and different types of materials.


Gülsüm Kavuncu (b. 1989, Ankara, Turkey) obtained an undergraduate degree from Istanbul Bilgi University with a double major in visual communication design and sociology. Her work revolves around the changing relationships of forms, functions, and meanings of things both in nature and daily life.
