Project Detail

The Huma Kabakcı Collection, which Nahit Kabakcı began to put together as of the 1980s, can be considered as one of the most important examples of the limited number of consciously created and well-sustained collections in Turkey. While based on certain logic, development, and subjectivity of the Huma Kabakcı Collection, the exhibition co-curated by Huma Kabakcı and Esra Aliçavuşoğlu also aimed to illustrate the collection’s periodically renewed and expanded structure through a certain art historical objectivity. Preserved and upheld by two consecutive generations, the collection’s affiliated and divergent points were brought to fore and the exhibition was shaped in this thematic manner. Apart from highlighting the contributions two different generations made to the collection, this particular selection also seeked to underline the inner consistence and transformation of its entirety.
