Tuba Köymen

Tuba Köymen, Ankara 1972

Residency period: July 2016

Artist and designer who lives and works in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. She was born in Turkey and graduated in 1995 from the Department of Graphic Design at Bilkent University. In 1999, she was awarded an MFA in Photography and Digital imaging by the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Köymen’s art calls attention to human nature by offering candid scenes of everyday life through the media of photography and photo based installations. Working across the gamut of photographic processes — from alternative to digital — Köymen art centers on issues arising from place, culture and social interaction. Her perspective is humanistic and universalizing; she regards these issues to be common territory for all human beings.
Köymen has had solo exhibitions locally and internationally in museums and galleries including the Center of Documentary Studies at Duke University, Light Factory (North Carolina), Austin College (Sherman, Texas), and the Museum Center in Baku, Azerbaijan. Köymen has organized or assisted in the organization of exhibitions of photography and art — including the Istanbul Biennial — and has led or participated in workshops, collaborative projects, and group exhibitions nationally and internationally.
