Nezaket Ekici, group show, ‘Home’ at Evliyagil Museum, Ankara

Neighbour Event of the 15th Istanbul Biennial



The Evliyagil Museum, the first privately held museum of modern art of Ankara, host its first comprehensive exhibition after its opening exhibition. Home that is a neighbour event of the 15th Istanbul Biennial and curated by Derya Yücel, is getting ready to share works of 38 artists with art-lovers, under the roof of the Evliyagil Museum.


Home, besides being a unifying power for the concepts of memory, self, individual, family, identity, enables a research towards multilayered meanings such as neighbor, neighborhood, city, society, environment, space, belonging, geography in the scope of the dialectics of inside and outside. For artists, home presents a diagram to guide their thoughts, memories and dreams. Homereinterprets works of artists from different generations and artistic practices, around the concept of home. The curatorial framework of the exhibition is based on a synthesis that explores intersection of art and artistic production practices beyond their diversity, common expressions of the image beyond its uniqueness based on interpretation, formal dialogues beyond multilayer of conceptual contents.


Home is formed under the dynamic hosting of the Evliyagil Museum, allowing a collection to be variable, open to possibilities and multiple syntheses; with the involvement of visiting non-collection works.


Home brings together works of Eşref Üren, Yüksel Arslan, Komet, Can Akgümüş, Canan Tolon, Necla Rüzgar, Gözde İlkin, Fırat Engin and Yuşa Yalçıntaş from the museum collection with works of Ahmet Doğu İpek, Ahmet Duru, Berat Işık, Berkay Yahya, Can İncekara, Cemre Yeşil, Cengiz Tekin, Çağrı Saray, Deniz Gül, Erdağ Aksel, Erdal Duman, Erinç Seymen, Erol Eskici, Ferhat Özgür, Hale Tenger, Hakan Gürsoytrak, Hera Büyüktaşçıyan, İpek Duben, İnci Furni, İrfan Önürmen, Leyla Gediz, Nezaket Ekici, Nil Yalter, Nuri Kuzucan, Romina Meriç, Şifa Girinci, Onur Ceritoğlu, Yaşam Şaşmazer and Yunus Emre Erdoğan.
