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.
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).Speaker's bios here.
