Date: 12 October 2014, Sunday, 12:00-14:30, Mixer
The first two steps of our ArtWriting project, held in September 2013 and June 2014, aimed at bringing the people in Turkey who are interested in art writing and critics together and creating an opportunity for them to benefit from each others experiences.
In this project’s 3rd step, we planned an extensive program for the young attendants interested in art writing and likely to improve their writing skills. On 12th of October 2014, Sunday at 12:00, we met at Mixer and separated into 4 groups with the professionals in the related field, in order to experience an in-depth practice, in the context of reading and criticising the exhibitions that basically define the art writing term.
The main arguments about reading the exhibitions at various art foundations were discussed whilst the event. Anyone in Turkey could make application. The criticism notes that the participants took in course of their exhibitions tours with the professionals who work in this field, will be gathered in a source that will enlighten the current status of art writing in Turkey.
