COOP Gallery and Seed Space are pleased to present “Asymmetric Kin”, a multidisciplinary international collaboration between artists from Nashville and Istanbul, Turkey. The Asymmetric Kin Project has connected artists from each city in a 6month collaborative relationship that has culminated in exhibitions at Istanbul’s Mixer Gallery in September and at Nashville’s Seed Space and Coop Galleries this October. Drawing a line between Nashville and Istanbul, the artists and curators have used Asymmetry as a lens to examine the many questions that arise from a consideration of the different sociopolitical, artistic, cultural and economic realities in these two countries. Participating artists include Kristi Hargrove and Bahar Yürükoğlu, Jana Harper and Erdal Inci, Michael Dickins, Jonathan Rattner and Ayşegül Süter. This project has been designed as a cultural exchange and a research experiment between Coop Curatorial Collective (Nashville, TN) and Creative Çukurcuma (Istanbul) and is being supported by Seed Space (Nashville, TN), the American Turkish Society as part of their Moon and Star Projects, as well as the Turkish Cultural Foundation.

is a lab for site-specific installation, sculpture and performance-based art in Nashville. We support our program in three specific ways. We bring in nationally recognized art critics to write our exhibition essays. We host regularly scheduled public talks. We facilitate meetings among artists, critics and curators. Through these means we aim to foster an exchange between a growing network of local and national artistic communities, which we believe is one of the best ways to support the careers of emerging artists. Located in the Track One building in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood of Nashville, Seed Space is supported by the Nashville Cultural Arts Project (NCAP), and is made possible with grants from the Tennessee Arts Commission, the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
