Intentions 2

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.
