The third of the Terrace Exhibitions series is taking place this year and shows the works of sculptors under the age of 40: contemporary sculptures and site-specific installations made of different materials.
As Istanbul’s only changing open air exhibition space, the Elgiz Museum offers an alternative for contemporary art. Amid the shadows of the skyscrapers in the business district of Maslak, the museum continues its Terrace Exhibitions series in its 1500 m2 open air rooftop exhibition space. Works are curated with reference to the artists’ age, not a specific theme or concept.
Having commenced in 2012, the third of the Terrace Exhibitions series is taking place this year and shows the works of sculptors under the age of 40. Artists’ applications are evaluated by an Advisory Committee consisting of Seyhun Topuz, Rahmi Aksungur, Nilüfer Ergin, Haşim Nur Gürel and Can Elgiz. In 2013, Australian sculptor Andrew Rogers contributed as guest committee member, raising the series to an international level. And this year, two artists have been invited to exhibit their works at the ‘La Balade de Séprais’ in the Jura region of Switzerland.
Proje4L/Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art proudly presents its dynamic programme for the new season, as well as its acclaimed permanent collection. Terrace Exhibitons <40 is an opportunity for art lovers to view an exquisite selection of stunning, contemporary sculptures and site-specific installations made of different materials.
