Mamut Art Project, Turkey’s unique art event dedicated to connecting up-and-coming artists with new collectors, galleries and curators, will return this spring to provide a dynamic platform for emerging creatives working in diverse disciplines both in Turkey and abroad.

The sixth edition of Mamut Art Project will run from April 26 to 29, 2018 at Istanbul’s KüçükÇiftlik Park.

Applications for Mamut Art Project 2018 are open to all independent contemporary artists, with no restrictions on age, medium or work. Entries for international applicants will close on Dec. 22.

Artists will be selected by a jury of five multi-disciplinary experts consisting of Ayşe Erkmen, Ayşe Umur, Evrim Altuğ, Haldun Dostoğlu and Selen Ansen.

Mamut Art Project will also feature Mamut Performances, a curated section aiming to showcase the power and importance of performance art.

In the 2018 edition, the re-performance rights of the works in this section will be sold, a first for art projects in Turkey. All artists are encouraged to apply to Mamut Performances. Applications for this section remain open until Jan. 15, 2018.
