Collect Gallery opens the new season with English artist Richard Bartle’s solo exhibition “Steppingstones”. Bringing three series consisting of the artist’s recent period work, the exhibition will be on view from September 14th to October 10th, 2022, at Collect Gallery’s venues in Tophane and Juma.
Stricken by the contradictive nature of everyday life on the streets of Paris – which the artist believes to be Europe’s most ambivalent city, with the project TOWNSMEN set as a unifying fabric throughout her time of artist-residency there, Elena Nazarova takes on two very contrasting routes
of artistic exploration, research, and representation, which deepen as she leaps into the city’s darker corners and nightlife, and eventually lead her to explore possibilities for the perfect object to protest the status quo while pleasing the viewer simultaneously.
Gallery Collect opens its doors with Check-In as a curatorial experiment that goes beyond the form and concept of a traditional art exhibition for reacting to the powerful flux of Istanbul.
Every week, in the main hall of the gallery, one artist is individually displayed in a solo show.
