The first section of the works that have been selected for exhibition in the contest, which 85 students from around Turkey entered in 25 days with over 120 works, may be seen at Siemens Sanat between June 13th and July 13th.
The contemporary art center Siemens Sanat will be hosting Mustafa Kula, Sibel Yıldız, Semra Karahan, Özgür Demirci, Sümer Sayın, Kerem Ozan Bayraktar, Alpaslan Karaaslan and Sinem Ilgıt Baykal’s works at the “Borders & Orbits 01” exhibition between June 13th and July 13th.
The works of the other eight artists determined by the Exhibition Evaluation Commission formed by Beral Madra, Ferhat Özgür, Handan Börüteçene, İnci Eviner, Mürteza Fidan, T.Melih Görgün and Alp Yörük, are going to be displayed at the “Borders & Orbits 02” exhibition held between July 25th and August 25th.
Jury member Beral Madra evaluated the project with the following words: “Curators who have undertaken the functions of consultancy and promotion, and gallery activities need to be well-assessed to facilitate the appearance of young artists in the art environment. Since its opening, Siemens Sanat has turned its interest towards young artists with an awareness and responsibility in this direction. And in the new series of contests it started under the name ‘Borders & Orbits’ it is interested in discovering the trends amongst university students.”
Siemens Sanat which was founded in 2004 within the context of corporate social responsibility operations, and was restructured with the partner operation strategy to be implemented with various art consultants and curators is planning to increase its audience number and become a preferential platform for young artists with the domestic and foreign prestige exhibitions.
