ART: "Asina/Familiar" at RIT SPAS Gallery 

Turkey may not be a country that is constantly on the minds of Americans, but we know it through familiar points of history and stories, including the Trojan War, Noah's Ark landing on Mount Ararat, St. Nicholas (who became the bishop of Demre before becoming a child's myth), and the home of a city that inspired a rather catchy tune by They Might Be Giants.

Learn about modern Turkish society and culture — and the impact of aggressive modernization upon it — at Rochester Institute of Technology's SPAS Gallery's new exhibition, "Asina/Familiar," which opens with a reception and artist discussion on Monday, October 29, 5-7 p.m., and will remain on view through November 16. The reception will take place in the gallery and be followed by a 7 p.m. artists' panel in Carlson Auditorium, Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science.

The show includes photography and video by contemporary Turkish artists, with works by Nancy Atakan, zgl Arslan, Ipek Duben, Gl Ilgaz, Iz ztat, Burcu Yagiz Yanatarol and Roberley Bell, professor in RITs School of Photographic Arts and Sciences. The SPAS Gallery is located on the third floor of RITs Frank E. Gannett Hall, and is open to the public Mondays-Fridays 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and by appointment on weekends. Admission is free. For more information, call 475-2884.
