Curating Contemporary Art

Seminar Program: January – July 2021
Application Deadline: 25 December 2020
Coordinator: Billur Tansel

“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 run under the coordination of Billur Tansel, will be carried out with an educational, practice-based and research-oriented approach. The seminars will be presented in Turkish and English. 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, if approved by the Jury, the final exhibition projects suggested by the participants will be displayed in either Akbank Sanat or other collaborative institutions and participants will be presented with a certificate of completion. The program will take place between January and July 2021. Every Monday between 18:00-20:30 on the digital platform and every Thursday between 18:00-20:30 at Akbank Sanat in Beyoğlu.

ABOUT OPEN DIALOGUE İSTANBUL
Open Dialogue Istanbul, founded by Billur Tansel in July 2015, was initially a nomad international contemporary art project that organized various cultural events on different platforms in Istanbul and abroad. Since October 2016, being based in Teşvikiye, other than the educational programs, we have also been organizing and realizing curatorial art projects and providing consultancy services to art institutions, collectors, students that plan a career in the art field and artists. One of its other important missions is encouraging and developing cultural dialogues between artists, curators and writers on an international level. Open Dialogue Istanbul purposes to provide a platform to young curators, artists and writers, as well as an on the field training opportunity to art students with no such experience.

To learn conditions of participation in a single seminar, we would kindly ask you to send an e-mail to apply@curatingcontemporaryart.org address noting the required seminar details.
