Seminar

“Representation of Women in Contemporary Art”

Seminar
“Representation of Women in Contemporary Art”

Women were considered a symbol of modernization in Turkey, and in the writing of art history this “symbol” was mostly ignored. The principal framework of this seminar will be formed around the questions of whether women continue to be a symbol in contemporary art; whether women have undertaken founding missions; whether there was a shift in paradigms concerning the way women were perceived during the time after the modern era, and the possible reflections of these in art.

Seda Yavuz

A faculty member of the Department of Art History at the Faculty of Letters in Istanbul University, Seda Yavuz received her doctoral degree in 2011 with her doctoral thesis titled “Heykelde Boşluk Kavrayışı: Modernizm ve Sonrası” (The Conception of Space in Sculpture: Modernism and Beyond); and was appointed as Associate Professor in 2018. With a field of study encompassing contemporary art and sculpture, Yavuz gives seminars on Discussions on Contemporary Art, History of Sculpture, and the Sources of Western Art at Istanbul University. A member of the International Association of Art Critics (AICA TR), Seda Yavuz has published a number of articles on contemporary art on various platforms.

The event is free of charge. Invitations available from the Akbank Sanat ticket office on the event day, one hour before the event begins.
