Professor A. Laurie Palmer and Gülşah Mursaloğlu published "Dear Laurie, Dear Gülşah"
Professor A. Laurie Palmer and Gülşah Mursaloğlu published "Dear Laurie, Dear Gülşah" an artists' book that documents, in English and Turkish versions, their correspondence from April to September 2020 across the disparate geopolitical circumstances of Istanbul and Santa Cruz. Within this transformative year that bore witness to a global pandemic, anti-racist protests, downfalls of power figures and monuments and fires around both continents, the letters both reflect on the present moment and offer insight into the artists’ practices and long-term projects. Designed by E.S. Kibele Yarman, the book is now accessible in 25 artist book collections across the U.S. Laurie also completed work on her other book manuscript The Lichen Museum, upcoming from The University of Minnesota Press.
