Calling visual arts professionals and curators in Turkey!
The British Council in Turkey has launched an open call to create an online exhibition of works from the British Council Collection. The chosen curator will have the opportunity to learn about the Collection, which is made up of over 8,500 works including paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, film and multimedia, by over 1,250 artists and meet our Visual Arts team.
Last year, Elif Kamışlı, a curator from Turkey, was selected for a British Council Curatorial Residency Programme in 2016. She visited London to explore the Collection and attended part of the British Council Cultural Skills team’s International Museum Academy at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. Elif made a selection of British landscape and sculpture works for her exhibition, entitled I Dreamed a Dream the Other Night.
