Other exhibiting artists include Charles Atlas, Trisha Baga, Millie Chen, Phil Collins, Andy Coolquitt, Ayşe Erkmen, Roger Hiorns, Nancy Holt, Angelbert Metoyer, Bruce Nauman, Yoko Ono, Paul Sharits, and Sofía Táboas.

His photography is also included in the traveling exhibition 1%: Privilege in a Time of Global Inequality. Organized by Myles Little, an independent curator and a senior photo editor at Time Magazine, the exhibition will appear in 13 galleries and festivals around the world during 2015-2016, including venues in China, Germany, Nigeria, Australia, and the USA. A catalog, with texts by Joseph Stieglitz and Geoff Dyer, will be published in December 2015 by Hajte Cantz. Please visit the exhibition’s website for further information at
