The first exhibition of the new series titled “Olympos Exhibitions” is a group show curated by the artist Taner Ceylan. The exhibition thematising Portrait is open between March 6 and 23 at Sadik Pasa Konagi in Cihangir. The show is sponsored by the olive grove owned by the artist himself in Olympos. In his own words, art comes full circle here and regenerates itself. “Olympos Exhibitions” is an experiment in which Taner Ceylan brings the production processes of those artists he is closely following with the fundamental concepts of art.
