CANAN @ MAK, Vienna

CANAN is participating in the group show “SIGNS TAKEN IN WONDER” in MAK (Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art) in Vienna, Austria. The exhibition surveys the work of 33 international contemporary artists, born between the 1920s and the 1980s, whose art work engages with aspects of the culture, history, and daily life of İstanbul. The curators of the exhibition, Simon Rees and Bärbel Vischer will examine the development of narration and language as a topic of contemporary art. The exhibition confronts the metropolis and discovers its various miracles, its culture and its art. CANAN is attending the exhibition with her video titled “Exemplary” (2009). Hamra Abbas, Murat Akagündüz, Halil Altindere, Asli Çavuşoğlu, Banu Çennetoğlu, Cevdet Erek, Sibel Horada, Ahmet Öğüt are some of the other artists that take place in the show. “SIGNS TAKEN IN WONDER” can be seen between 23 January – 21 April.
