TULU BAYAR

Turkish born, American artist Tulu Bayar works with an eclectic range of media including photography, video, sound, sculpture, performance, mixed-media and installation.

Her exhibitions have been covered by international media including NPR, The Irish Times, Afterimage, Photography Quarterly, TRT (National Public Broadcaster of Turkey) and the Bushwick Daily.

 

She has received funding from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Ténot Foundation, artist-in residency grants from Camac Centre d'Art in France and the Center for Photography at Woodstock funded by the Andy Warhol Foundation as well as William Sackett Fellowship through Virginia Center for Creative Arts.
