Traces at The Empire Project

The Empire Project is proud to present an exhibition of three contemporary Hungarian photographers in cooperation with the Nessim Gallery in Budapest. The works of these three photographers show a special aspect of contemporary photography. All three are in search of something deeper, something that transcends the image and poses the eternal question, “How do we, who are here under this sky, regain & retain our humanity?

The Empire Project identifies and exhibits contemporary art from the regions which have historically been within the cultural sphere of influence centered upon (or significantly affected by) the imperial locus we today call Istanbul. Geographically speaking, the range is wide, including most of the Mediterranean world and Arabian Peninsula, much of Eastern Europe, Anatolia, the Black Sea region, and Central Asia.
