Celebrating its 30+1st anniversary this year, TEPTA organizes a talk at SAHA Studio titled Light in contemporary art, which focuses on the interrelation between light, space and contemporary art, with the participation of Ali Kazma and Hale Tenger on Thursday, March 24. The event is coordinated with SAHA Studio of which TEPTA is one the supporters.
The talk brings together Hale Tenger who employs a striking mode of expression in her works referencing to the traumas and paradoxes that have left their mark on the collective and individual memory, and who elevates her multi-faceted artistic practice to a multi-sensory experience with the use of sound and light, and Ali Kazma who explores the ways in which people make sense of their existence and the world via his lens-based work. The talk at SAHA Studio will be moderated by Özlem Yalım, the Head of Brand Strategy at TEPTA.
