iSMEK – (Turkey)

The exhibition which is going to be opened at the Naval Museum on January 5th 2018 Friday, has been the result of a four-month feverish study. Consisting of academician designers of Yıldız Teknik and Bilgi Universities, İSMEK Fokus Group Design Workshop was established with 40 experienced trainers of ISMEK for the exhibition. The workshop for “Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow/ The Adventure of Endeavour” exhibition brought many traditional arts such as calligraphy, illumination, ceramics and kât’ı (paper engraving)  together with contemporary designs to reveal fairly original works.

This is the first exhibition that emphasizes collective endeavour on craft, art and design together with the recognition of Istanbul as a “Design City” approved by UNESCO.
The curatorship of the exhibition has been performed by Yildiz Technical University Art and Design Faculty Assoc. Dr. Seza Sinanlar Uslu, designed by Aslı Kıyak and Ayşenaz Toker from Bilgi University, Faculty of Architecture Department of Industrial Products Design. Around 100 designs were created by blending 27 different branches bringing craft and art together by the artisans of İSMEK.
