The Gün, or Gold Day, is a Turkish system of gift exchange, constructing female space and networks; it’s a day when friends gather in one of their flats to have some food, tea, and conversation, where everyone brings the hostess a gold coin (~$70).
Attendees are invited to participate in Gold Day rituals following a screening of two video works by Hale Ekinci. The artist will close the evening with a group conversation alongside Pinar Üner Yilmaz and Gözde Erdeniz.
Vegetarian food, tea, and a dessert will be served. Suggested donation of $5 - $7 to evoke the Gold Day experience.
Presented in partnership with ACRE.
