STATEMENT FROM THE ARTIST: Serhat Tanyolacar is a Turkish artist, autism father, educator, socio–political activist, and free-expression advocate currently living in Oregon. This exhibition takes us into his journey of being an oppositional artist. As a conscientious objector, he has been self–exiled from his native country since 2015, producing poetically political artworks through print, performance, and multimedia. For over 20 years of his artistic career, he has shown works and intervened in public life both in America and internationally with his provocative and radical art–making process. Tanyolacar is an Assistant Professor of Studio Art at Linfield University.
