Taner Ceylan: at the Elgiz Museum

March 21, 2014

The Elgiz Museum presents a selection of works from 5 young collectors from Turkey.

The contemporary arts scene is rapidly changing. In Turkey and throughout the world, talented students’ works are featured in galleries and auctions. Star artists are surrounded by the media and collectors, and creative individuals are able to go through a fast-paced sultanate period until the next star candidate takes the stage. These “young generation” collectors make an effort to acquire the creations of artists close to their own generation.

The Elgiz Museum brings to light the efforts of collectors at a formation stage.

“Young Collectors” is put together by the curator Haşim Nur Gürel and the museum team. The works are evaluated in relation to art history by Burcu Pelvanoğlu. Collectors’ or collection-related texts give clues to the show’s formation.

Selected works of the collectors Ahu Büyükkuşoğlu Serter, Ebru Özdemir, Hüma Kabakçı, Mehmet Ali Bakanay and Tansa Mermerci Ekşioğlu will be on view at the Elgiz Museum until May 7. In addition, there will be a variety of events parallel to the exhibition. 

The artists whose works will be on view during this exhibition are: Ali Taptık, Ahmet Oran, Ardan Özmenoğlu, Azade Köker, Burak Delier, Emin Ansen Atilla, Erinç Seymen, Haluk Akakçe, Hatice Güleryüz, Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, Iman Issa, Klara Kristalova, Mat Collishaw, Necla Rüzgar, Nezaket Ekici, Nilbar Güreş, Patrik Kovacovsky, Ramazan Bayrakoğlu, Robert Montgomery, Shahpour Pouyan, Sophie Calle, Susan Hefuna, Taner Ceylan, Volkan Aslan and Yuşa Yalçıntaş.
