Ni­tra Gallery launches its Athens an­nex with a solo ex­hi­bi­tion by Turk­ish con­cep­tual artist Ar­dan Oz­menoglu at 8 p.m. on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 26. The show, “What’s the Time in Is­tan­bul,” touches upon the themes of iden­tity and na­tional self-un­der­stand­ing and is in­spired by the volatile sit­u­a­tion in Turkey fol­low­ing last year’s failed coup. The 38-year-old artist, who re­cently re­lo­cated from Is­tan­bul to Brook­lyn, works with a wide range of me­dia, such as large-scale glass sculp­tures, neon light­ing and post-it notes – the medium she has used for her lat­est show. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs through Fe­bru­ary 25. Ni­tra Gallery is the evo­lu­tion of Atrion, which was founded in Thes­sa­loniki, north­ern Greece, in 1994. In 2013, the helm passed to Aliki Tsir­liagkou, as Atrion be­came Ni­tra and moved to the cap­i­tal’s Ro­man Agora neigh­bor­hood.
