For it’s new show “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas”, opening on February 2nd, 44 A Art Gallery finds inspiration in the narrative of Ursula LeGuin’s short story from 1973 of the same name. The show, which will be on view until March 8th hosts exclusive works from Ahmet Elhan, Murat Morova, Erdağ Aksel, Ali Elmacı, Berat Işık and Berkay Tuncay.
With her story “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas”, LeGuin tells the tale of a society who has to face an incident as they live in a utopian city, and shows the reflections that rise from a lack of collective consciousness. Looking at social and political contradictions through concepts like conscience, guilt and happiness, the story also addresses current problems we face today. The exhibition includes works that describe cities that represent Omelas, as well as works that refer to the psychology and emotional challenges of the people of Omelas.
You may visit the exhibition “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” between February 2 – March 8, at 44 A Art Gallery.
