Long Thursday at SALT
This month’s “Long Thursday” at SALT gallery includes a talk in the Walk-in Cinema and guided tours of the current exhibitions. The tours will begin at 19:00 and 20:00 p.m. at SALT Galata and 20:00 p.m. at SALT Beyoğlu. In addition, visitors can enjoy special discounts in the café of SALT Galata and at the bookstores in both buildings. The tour of SALT Beyoğlu’s “Scared of Murals” exhibition will be lead by Merve Elveren and Vasıf Kortun, of SALT Research and Programs. The show looks back at the 1976-1980 period by tracing exhibitions, public art projects such as murals, and collective and political endeavors.
The rights of artists; the relationship between art and society, economy and labor; debates on censorship; and the cultural policies of the state, are all issues that are investigated in the show. Fahri Aral, an important actor of the period and the editor-in-chief of Bilgi University Press, will give a talk on the content of the exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu’s Walk-in Cinema at 19:00 p.m.
