INSIDE, OUTSIDE AND IN PARALLEL: SPECULATIONS FROM FOUR CURATORS WORKING IN THE TURKISH CONTEXT

Mari Spirito, Övül Durmuşoğlu, Başak Şenova and November Paynter

The next Gertrude-Discipline lecture takes the form of a panel: a discussion between four curators whose work concerns the presentation and production of contemporary art from Turkey. Mari Spirito, Övül Durmuşoğlu, Başak Şenova and November Paynter represent a range of voices from within the independent, not-for-profit and museum sectors in Turkey. They will discuss their approaches to curating contemporary Turkish art, highlighting the individual concerns, challenges and circumstances that motivate and inform their curatorial approaches.

Following the panel discussion, Associate Professor and Director of Curatorial Practise at Monash University and Editor at-large for The Exhibitionist, Tara McDowell, will facilitate a Q&A with the audience.

Inside, Outside and In Parallel: Speculations from four curators working in the Turkish context is presented by Gertrude Contemporary and Discipline in collaboration with Artspace and Protocinema.

Mari Spirito, Övül Durmuşoğlu, Başak Şenova and November Paynter have been brought to Australia by Artspace, Sydney, in partnership with Protocinema, Istanbul, in the lead-up to the Australian-Turkish year of collaboration (2015).
