Curated by Çelenk Bafra and Levent Çalıkoğlu, HARBOR deals with the depiction of port areas in Turkish visual art.
The exhibition relies on curatorial research with a focus on the cultural and social life that developed around harbors from the 19th century to the present. You’ll find works by more than 30 of Turkey’s leading artists, among them Nevin Aladağ, Hüseyin Bahri Alptekin, Abidin Dino, Burhan Doğançay, Feyhaman Duran, Ara Güler, Nuri İyem and Gülsün Karamustafa, to name only a few. The exhibition also pays tribute to the origins of the building, which formerly served as a dry cargo warehouse before it was converted into a modern museum.
