Entitled “Art Everywhere, All the Time”, with this exhibition, the ARMAGGAN Art & Design Gallery opens its doors to art that has not only a conceptual dimension but also a functional aspect.

Organized on the principle that “Art is a part of life, human and necessary,” the exhibition explored this declaration by asking 22 artists to produce works exploring the notions: “How can art be with us 24/7?” and “How can art be incorporated into daily life?”

According to ARMAGGAN Art & Design Gallery coordinator Şanel Şan: “The starting point of the ART 24/7 exhibition was within the concepts of art-design-function, which are very much part of the current discourse and under the new heading of functional art, we wanted to see how “daily objects” that we use in our regular lives are made “unique” in the artist’s hands and become part of our lives, entering the every-day world.

The ART 24/7 Vol. 2 exhibition has the distinction of being Turkey’s only functional art exhibition. 22 artists, including Tan Mavitan, Hüseyin Rüstemoğlu, Lütfiye Kösten and Neşe Çoğal, were briefed on the exhibition’s theme three months ago and asked to produce original pieces for the exhibition. The result was works clustered around the point where art and design intersect, building distinctive and original brides between these two creative disciplines. The ART 24/7 Vol. 2 exhibition will be on display at the ARMAGGAN Art  & Design Gallery through October 16, 2013. www.armaggangallery.com
