Editors' picks from Art Basel

As the international art crowd prepared to descend on Hong Kong for the city's edition of Art Basel, Time Out Hong Kong solicited editors' picks of participating galleries from Time Out's international team. My brief writeup of Istanbul gallery CDA-Projects appears in the May issue of Time Out Hong Kong under the title "Art Basel: Time Out international editors' picks":
6. CDA-Projects Gallery (1C23)
Focusing on emerging artists from Turkey, CDA-Projects doesn't shy away from challenging, multimedia work that questions gender and cultural norms. Featured artist Zeren Göktan's interactive installation Counter blends technology and tradition to confront viewers with uncomfortable realities about violence against women.
