One week until the launch of Apogee Issue 06, which we will celebrate at the Bureau of General Services Queer Division on December 10th @ 7PM. Join us! Until then, we are honored to feature Imran Perretta’s “Devotion.”

IMRAN PERRETTA’s work occupies a shifting, liminal territory between time/s and place/s. He deploys the authentic trace alongside the theatrical and the constructed to meditate on the inheritance of identity, the marginal body and the passing of individual and cultural histories. Current exhibitions include a solo presentation of 5 percent for Kunsten.nu alongside the group show Just Frustration at SixtyEight, Copenhagen, Denmark. Recent shows include Devotions at MOT International Project Space (2015), New Contemporaries at the Liverpool Biennial and the ICA, London (2014). In 2014, Perretta was the recipient of the Boise Travel Scholarship. He lives and works in London, UK.
