Intentions 2

'Intentions 2' is a documentation exhibition that gathers under one roof the graduation projects prepared by the participants and found successful by the jury at the end of the 'Contemporary Art and Curatorial' Seminar Program for the period January-July 2021.

Due to the pandemic, this year's seminar program was carried out entirely on the digital platform. Individual graduation projects consist of exhibition projects that emerged and developed through the interaction with speakers, trainers and participants.  The pandemic process in Turkey and the world, and other factors during the program also had an impact of these projects.

'Intentions 2'; In this period full of uncertainties and concerns, it aims to document and present the exhibition projects in which the curator candidates invite the audience to awareness about the changes and turbulences we are all going through in the world we live in.

This semester’s participants are from disciplines such as archeology, translation, literature, industrial design, business administration, geological engineering, economics, philosophy, cultural studies, architecture, ceramics.

Even though their formation is different, together, they have developed projects that reveal a unity of discourse.

On the digital platform, a virtual experience area has been allocated for the curators to perform some of the activities they have designed within the framework of their projects. The purpose of the latter would be to create an interactive environment where there are encounters between curators, artists and audiences. Some of these events will be held in the physical environment and will be published on the online platform.

About the Program

“Curating Contemporary Art” is a 7 month-long seminar series organized in cooperation by Open Dialogue Istanbul and Akbank Sanat. The purpose of these seminars is to initiate a comprehensive program on curating that is on an international level, thus creating a prestigious and unequalled platform of education in this field in Turkey.

The program will consist of both theory and practice. The program, which will be directed by Billur Tansel, will be carried out with an educational, practice-based and research-oriented approach. The seminars will be presented in Turkish and English, there will also be eight workshops for the participants to develop their finishing project which will be a curatorial project proposal to be evaluated by the jury at the end of the program. Speakers will be renowned actors from the international art platform. The seminars will also feature case studies on biennials, galleries, museums and art fairs. At the end of the seminars, the participants will present their individual curatorial project proposals and if approved by the Jury, the participants will be presented with a certificate of completion.  The participants will be offered internship, curatorial assistance opportunities in different institutions.
