Merkezkaç Selections


Exhibition, Workshop


01/03 – 30/11/2019

‘Merkezkaç Selections’ offers contemporary artists from a range of disciplines and age groups a series of workshops emphasizing artistic quality, production strategies and the benefits of cross-generational collaboration. Merkezkaç Art Collective realizes exhibitions, talks and workshops, improves the mutual interaction between the art professionals and creates a platform that enables the participants to think through multiplicity of artistic productions where the artists are free to determine the themes and methods of their practice. With a focus on interdisciplinary research, the photographers, videographers, performance artists and installation artists collectively consider the creative process from the initial concept to the final product. The ‘Ways of Exhibiting’ workshop lead and curated by Derya Yücel culminates in the form of exhibitions in Diyarbakır, Mardin and Istanbul. By strengthening solidarity between generations through the transfer of experience, the project provides fresh dynamics for contemporary art scene. In addition to bringing the collective works of art to life, the project invites audiences in the three cities to witness and experience the entire process it covers.
