BALCONIES will save the art
On Tuesday evening, April 29, an extraordinary event took place in Mixer. This PechaKucha Night Istanbul event, organized by the Mixer team in collaboration with 34Solo, brought together architecture and contemporary art. Those who missed the night can follow the writers of the night on the Mixer blog. The first article of this series is from Architect Nurgül Yardım and her PechaKucha presentation called “BALCONIES will save the art”
– Reflections on the evening of Pecha Kucha –
It was inspiring to listen to the discovery of contemporary art and architecture by architects, to think about it and to dream about it. Thanks to the architects, artists, art lovers and city lovers who attended the night and those who thought about it.
If it is not possible to think about art away from people, it would not be possible to separate architecture with the city. When you think about it, the architecture of the city’s art and the architecture of all people are intense, exciting.
When I’m passing through the streets, I always watch the balconies and think about their identities as exhibitions. Maybe one day, they could be the new spaces of art, who knows?
