"Buluşma…Reunion” brings together the works produced by the young artists whose paths, at some point in their lives, crossed with the Sabancı University Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design Program and who now work as professional artists, for the first time. Incorporating arts education with a solid scientific foundation, the Sabancı University Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design Program came to be increasingly recognized in local and international biennales, expositions and museums in recent years, through the rich, profound and distinct works of its graduates. Today, these young artists are making their marks in art spaces both in Turkey and abroad, distinguishing themselves with their perseverance and flexible vision in the art world, where maintaining permanence and continuity is a constant challenge. “Buluşma…Reunion” brings together some of these young artists of varying tendencies and proficiencies, united by their common commitment to produce in the professional art world, on the 15th anniversary of the program’s first course.
As part of the “Buluşma… Reunion” exhibition, works by the Sabancı University Visual Arts and Visual Communication Program graduates Aslı Narin, Baptiste Croze, Berke Soyuer, Beyza Boyacıoğlu, Burcu Yağcıoğlu, Cemre Yeşil, Deniz Gül, Deniz Üster, Ege Kanar, Egemen Demirci, Elif Süsler, Erdem Taşdelen, Hasan Salih Ay, Hayal Pozantı, İz Öztat, Julia Kul, Onur Ceritoğlu, Tan Mavitan and Meriç Algün Ringborg, who was recently invited to be a part of the 56. Venice Biennale will be exhibited alongside two works by sculptor Bayram Candan, who continued his art practice in the metal studio at the Sabancı University until his untimely passing in 2013.
“Buluşma…Reunion” will resound with its youth and energy, and will be open to visit between the dates of April 9 and July 26, 2015.
