Hayal Pozanti in conversation with Holly Shen

Saturday, November 10 at 3:00pm at 488 Ellis Street

On the occasion of Hayal Pozanti’s solo exhibition “Murmurs of Earth,” please join us for a conversation between the artist and Holly Shen, Deputy Director of the San Jose Museum of Art. The discussion will explore Pozanti’s “Murmurs of Earth” exhibition, focusing on the style and content of her recent figurative imagery. It will also trace the evolution of her abstract “Instant Paradise” alphabet within the long history of human communication as well as the expansion of this lexicon into sculptural form.

Hayal Pozanti (b. 1983, Istanbul, Turkey) has a BA from Sabanci University and a MFA from Yale University. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Broad Art Museum in Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the San Jose Museum of Art and JP Morgan. Pozanti has enjoyed many solo exhibitions, including one at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Connecticut. Her work was been featured in group shows at the Kitchen (New York), MCA Santa Barbara (CA), Cornell Fine Arts Museum (FL), Sabanci Museum (Istanbul) and Prospect 3 for the New Orleans Biennial and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. In 2017, she presented a monumental digital video installation, titled “Relentless Tenderness,” at the new World Trade Center for Public Art Fund. Pozanti lives and works in Los Angeles. “Murmurs of Earth” is her third exhibition in San Francisco with Jessica Silverman Gallery.

Holly Shen comes to the Bay Area from the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where she produced exhibitions, public programming, and performances, and oversaw all visual arts activity. In 2018, Shen was named a Catherine Hannah Behrend Fellow, as part of 92nd Street Y’s Women in Power Fellowship program. Shen has also been a faculty member at Fashion Institute of Technology, State University of New York, in the graduate program for Art Market Studies. Previous positions include serving as curator for the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center Ambulatory Care division; curatorial liaison for Artsy; and registrar at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, where she first started her career. She holds a BA in art history from Georgetown University and an MA in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University.
