INTERNATIONAL CONTEMPORARY ART PROJECT
Initiated by Huma Kabakcı Open Space Contemporary is an international contemporary art project that looks into promoting cross-cultural dialogue between artists, curators and art practitioners internationally. The first edition took place in London in September 2014 with the exhibition titled “City Senses” in collaboration with curator Aisha Stoby and artists Ardan Özmenoğlu & Radhika Khimji. This particular nomadic project space aims to create recognition, present artists and curators coming from diverse cultural backgrounds, experiences and artistic practices.
The project was initially founded as Open Space Istanbul, later the name was changed to Open Space Contemporary in 2016. By calling itself ‘open,’ Open Space Contemporary aims to explore various art media through talks, performances, moving images, screenings and dialogues. One of the key objectives of the project is to further the curatorial and artistic discourse and open up to other exhibitions and symposiums. Open Dialogue Istanbul Initiated by Billur Tansel, is a collaborating project that focuses on educational programmes, talks and dialogues.
