Inside, Outside & In Parallel with Mari Spirito, Övül Durmuşoğlu, Başak Şenova, November Paynter
When | Saturday 1 November, 2pm – 4pm
Location | Artspace, Level 2, Seminar Room
In the lead-up to the Australian–Turkish year of collaboration (2015) and in partnership with Protocinema in Istanbul, Artspace has invited four Turkish curators representing a range of independent, not-for-profit and museum sectors to Australia, including: Mari Spirito (Founding Director of Protocinema), Övül Durmuşoğlu (curator and writer based in Berlin and Istanbul), Başak Şenova (curator and designer based in Istanbul), November Paynter (Associate Director of Research and Programmes, SALT, Istanbul).
On Saturday 1 November Artspace will present a public conversation with the visiting curators, each participant giving a short talk on an issue that is critical to the particular arena in which they are currently working. Following the presentations, a panel discussion and Q&A session lead by Suhanya Raffel (Director of Collections, Art Gallery of NSW) will enable the audience to engage with a variety of methodologies specific to a Turkish context.
This curatorial research visit is generously supported and enabled by the Australia Council for the Arts and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
