Please join us for the opening reception of “Intimate Fragments”, celebrating the work of our 5 resident artists at the Casa dell’Arte Residency program.The program aims to transform Casa dell’Arte into a hub of artistic collaboration, exchange and production in the Eastern Mediterranean region by making the resources of Casa dell’Arte in Bodrum available to visual artists for a period of six weeks.This year’s resident artists are Annalisa Fulvi, Basir Mahmood, Hajnalka Tarr, Mariana Renthel and Yusa Yalcintas. Each have taken Torba, Bodrum as a starting point for their projects and explored the ways in which identities, histories and memories are formed in their very own distinctive voices and mediums.
