Darağaç’s ‘Rotation’ exhibition invites new collective and individual initiatives in the Umurbey neighborhood with the intention of reinforcing the importance of sharing and community culture. Taking its cues from the working principle of a water mill, Darağaç_Rotation creates a shared creative space by including the stakeholders in the neighborhood within its dynamic cultural production practice.
This year, Darağaç_Bostan, Darağaç_Sahne, Karargah, industrial workshops, used/unused households, and streets are among the new spots opened to the public for the exhibition in order to extend dialogue in the neighborhood. Darağaç_Rotation, featuring approximately 150 artists with duo and solo presentations, aspires to transform spaces into production, exhibition, and living areas with the participation of designers and artists with a special focus on recycling/upcycling.
The project is realised in collaboration with urbanarts, and with the support of CultureCIVIC: Structural Support Grant Program, Spaces of Culture, Saha Association, Bayetav Foundation, İzmir Art, Karaoğlu A.Ş., and Bornova Rotary Club.
