MUSEUM ACQUISITION | CENTRE POMPIDOU

Centre Pompidou has acquired Nil Yalter's Exile is a Hard Job (C’est un dur métier que l’exil), 1983 to the permanent collection of the museum, which had been part of artist's recent retrospective exhibition in 'TRANS/HUMANCE' at MAC VAL, Vitry-sur-Seine, France. The title Exile is a Hard Job taken from the Turkish poet Nazım Hikmet, reveals the lot of Turkish workers in the Sentier quarter of Paris, known for its fabric shops and sordid working conditions. Raw reality is combined with elements from their culture, with myths, poems and popular beliefs.
