eyes never sleep

A research-based exhibition space centered around curatorial collaboration and editorial initiatives, eyes never sleep pursues visual culture across artistic mediums and historical moments.

As its emblem, eyes never sleep draws on the form of the dog in Josef Koudelka's 1987 photograph from Parc de Sceaux. A former political refugee who for years remained stateless and even avoided the risk of attaching his name to his photographs, Koudelka established a singular practice of observing and recording the omnipresent chaos and resilience of life between and beyond borders.

Looking to Koudelka and many other visual, historical, and curatorial influences, eyes never sleep seeks to bear witness.
