Organised jointly by İKSV Alt Kat and the Istanbul Biennial, and with the support of the Istanbul Development Agency, the Production and Research Programme encompasses the personal mentorship of prior Istanbul Biennial artists from Turkey to fifteen artists or art students under the age of 29 residing in Istanbul.
The masters and young artists selected by the Istanbul Biennial meet once a month to share their experiences. These meetings aim to support the young artists in developing an original language and their exhibition skills as well as content and technique. The master artists involved in the project were selected by the Istanbul Biennial team. The young artists to receive mentorship were selected by the Istanbul Biennial team from amongst the artists responding to the open call made by İKSV based on their portfolio evaluations and interviews. The participants of the Istanbul Biennial Production and Research Programme that takes place between September 2019 – March 2020 are; Cevahir Akbaş, Sadık Arı, Servet Aslan, Neslihan Başer, Bahriye Kabadayı Dal, Berke Doğanoğlu, Ayçesu Duran, Alican Durbaş, Selin Erdemirci, Nejbir Erkol, Esra Oskay Malicki, Ufuk Barış Mutlu, Uğur Sarışen, Sub and Metehan Özcan.
In line with their mentorship meetings with the young artists, the master artists will hold free talks open to the public at İKSV Alt Kat: Learning and Interaction Space during November 2019 – March 2020.
