ISTANBUL.- The Terrace Exhibitions are created as a series of summer exhibitions. This year it is the third time that museum is organising the terrace exhibition and compared to the last years, it is more comprehensive. This year, the exhibition is organised with the support of the Guggenheim International Directors Council.
Speaking about the exhibition, the director of the museum, Billur Tansel said: Even though the works are curated with reference to the artists age, not a specific theme or concept, the general focus of the project proposals is on social concerns and anxieties.
Having commenced in 2012, the third of the Terrace Exhibitions series is taking place this year and shows the works of sculptors under the age of 40. Artists applications are evaluated by an Advisory Committee consisting of Seyhun Topuz, Rahmi Aksungur, Nilüfer Ergin, Haşim Nur Gürel and Can Elgiz. In 2013, Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers contributed as guest committee member, raising the series to an international level. And this year, two artists have been invited to exhibit their works at the La Balade de Séprais in the Jura region of Switzerland. Works that challenge the notorious winds of the Ayazağa/Maslak district are on view in an extraordinary space. In the shadows of the skyscrapers and a constantly changing surrounding, spectators can view art from a different perspective.
Terrace Exhibitions <40 will be on view until 23 August.
