Gallery Apels Twentieth Year
Gallery Apel opened in November 1998 in Beyoğlu and has been operating in the same place without interruption ever since. Although Beyoğlu is constantly undergoing major architectural and social transformations, it always maintains its status as cultural center of Istanbul. Gallery Apel was designed in 1994 with this awareness, and since then, has witnessed all the interesting times full of contradictions that this neighborhood has experienced.
As the veteran gallery enters its twentieth year, it decided to have a different exhibition layout that would bring together its own past with its present. It dreamed of re-exhibiting some of the works that had previously been featured in solo or themed exhibitions at Apel, and at the same time have the same artists present new works. Spanning the entire season, this exhibition will have a dynamism similar to that of the act of remembering. During this process, works will be replaced by others and parts of the exhibition will change as it goes along. Believing that rather than a chronological approach, the course we follow will inevitably lead to a nostalgic surge, we named the event Nostospective.
