The 2018 Akbank 36th Contemporary Artists Prize Exhibition showcases works by 18 finalists, across a variety of media – including painting, sculpture, installation, video and performance. Together, this juried selection highlights the breadth of techniques and intellectual agendas playing out in Turkey’s emerging art scene.

The featured positions investigate a host of contemporary concerns. Reflections on how new technologies are redefining everyday life, affecting the way we learn, what we know, and how we feel, appear prominently. Additionally, timely meditations on the fate of place, and landscape, in a culture saturated with representation abound. Cutting across both of these tendencies, and registering more perennial concerns, explorations of language and sense making are present. So, too, engagements with the power of suggestion, and influence.

Celebrating new talents, and offering them a platform, the Akbank 36th Contemporary Artists Prize Exhibition looks towards the future of art, today.
