- What’s On
Pg Art Gallery, founded in 1993 by Pırıl Güleşçi Arıkonmaz and Gülsen Güleşçi, started off by exhibiting only well-known Turkish artists. In recent years, however, the gallery has made the move into exhibiting and representing emerging artists.
Pg Art hosts regular, month-long exhibitions, mostly solo shows of the gallery’s represented artists, with the odd group exhibition slotted in.
The roster of artists includes mostly Turkish names but there are a few international artists, including the Dutch artists Jerome Symons and Roeki Symons and the American photographer Maura Sullivan. From the Turkish pool, there’s the photographer Ali Kabaş; the Istanbul-born video and installation artist Ayşe Gül Süter; Devabil Kara, who bends visual perception in his work; the veteran Ankara-born sculptor Günnur Özsoy; the Istanbul-born, New-York based photographer Jak Baruh; and the Istanbul-born artist Kemal Tufan, who aims to shock viewers with his ironic works.
