We are delighted to announce that Seyhan Musaoglu from Turkey, Tetiana Kochubinska from Ukraine and Teona Burkiashvili from Georgia will work together on the fourth exhibition of the digital platform.
All applications were reviewed by the jury which will consist of the following people:
Gemma Hollington, Director Exhibitions, British Council, Moira Lindsay, Head of Collection, British Council, Ying Tan, Curator, British Council, Esra A Aysun, Head of Arts, British Council, Turkey, Maya Darchia, Arts Manager, British Council Georgia and Ilya Zabolotnyi, Visual Arts Programme Manager, British Council, Ukraine.
Museum without Walls had successfully hosted three exhibitions bringing together works from the British Council Collection and from artists from Turkey. The platform has been awarded with multiple Golden Spider Web Awards including best website of the year and a Silver Medal at the International Design and Communications Awards.
The curators will travel to the UK and different countries to work together collaboratively but also alongside experienced arts professionals from the British Council to develop their exhibition concept, digital knowledge and international networks.
Exhibition concept: ‘In Between’:
In today’s highly globalised world, characterised by a constant exchange of information due to the Internet breaking down national barriers and driving a high level of mobility among individuals who become members of multicultural societies, the definition of ‘national’ is itself being challenged. To work within this internationalism, a shared purpose to increasing knowledge and experience is to find ways in order to make a leading contribution to aspects of equality, diversity and inclusion.
The exhibition will focus on themes of dislocation, displacement, degrees of separation, cultural identity and moments captured in between spaces. Curators are asked to think on ideas of transience, migration, journeys, shifting identity to collaboratively curate a digital exhibition from the British Council Collection as well as local artists from their own contexts.
