‘Father-son’ exhibit by Engin Türker
ANKARAA new exhibition, which opens May 27 in the Turkish capital Ankara, presents a section from the dreams of retired ambassador Engin Türker and his son, Kerem Türker, who died in 2014. This special exhibition, titled “Father-Son/Curator and His Artist,” includes works from various exhibitions that Engin Türker opened over the last 10 years which were curated by his late son.
Engin Türker is a painter and sculptor who has opened 32 solo exhibitions around the world so far. His son, Kerem Türker, provided special support for six of his exhibitions abroad between 2002 and 2014. The exhibitions were centered on the theme of “love and peace.” The new exhibition is dedicated to Kerem Türker’s memory.
“From now on, I will maintain my work with the moral support of my son,” says Engin Türker. “The memory of my son will be kept alive by the Architect Kerem Türker Foundation through social and cultural events in the fields of architecture, urbanism, environment and fine arts.”
The exhibition can be visited through June 6 every day except Sunday between 9:30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. at the Pet Holding Art Gallery in Ankara.
