‘Melting Point’ extended in Venice
ISTANBUL“Melting Point,” an exhibition by Turkish artist and designer Aslı Kutluay, was held as a preview show for early visitors to the Venice Architecture Biennial between April 6 and May 20.
Due to high interest from visitors, the exhibition has been extended until June 22 in a new art space, the Magazzino Gallery on the Grand Canal, one of the most important Early Renaissance buildings in Venice. Curated by Vittorio Urbani, the exhibition is organized with the sponsorship of Nef.
Living and working in Ankara, Kutluay takes a strong interest in presenting the world’s cultural diversities, dilemmas and richness. She transmits her observations into evocative stories in paintings, sculptures and installations.
The works in Kutluay’s exhibition assess whether these two fields can be mixed further, and their traditional division challenges us to go deeper in this direction.
