SENSING OTHERWISE
A Story of an Exhibition

In this text, Walter Mignolo turns a visit to Let the Guest Be the Master, an exhibition by artist Hayv Kahraman at Jack Shainman Gallery in New York (10th September to 11th October 2013), into a narrative that explores the relationship between a viewer and the work of the artist. Using the form of a dialogue, Mignolo feels out the messages in Kahraman’s work, and explores the artist’s composition as expressed in the painted surfaces as well as in the use of space in the gallery.
