‘Does it feel cosy?’ - a digital art exhibition exploring what it means to feel at home.
The British Council’s innovative digital exhibition platform ‘Museum Without Walls’ launched its fifth edition ‘Does it feel cosy?’ on 27 May 2021. The exhibition, co-curated by Rita Aktay representing Turkey and Ritika Biswas representing the UK, looks at the female experience, domestic space and wider ecology, and explores what it means to feel at home within and outside of oneself.
This is the fifth exhibition of the platform which reached more than a million visitors so far. It brings together works from the outstanding British Council Collection alongside works by international contemporary artists.
We launched the new exhibition with an online event on 27 May at 2pm UK time with the participation of Skinder Hundal, British Council Director Arts, ‘Does it feel cosy?’ co-curators Rita Aktay and Ritika Biswas, project's artistic advisor Elliott Burns and the project manager Su Başbuğu.
The event was held in English with Turkish simultaneous translation as well as British and Turkish Sign language interpretations.
