The “12cm.” exhibition is an artistic initiative that has been active in Spain, France and Portugal for more than two decades. The exhibits, which involve the contributions of 12 cm2 works by multiple artists from all over Europe, have inspired Şükrü Karakuş to form a cohort from Turkey to exhibit works specifically for the showcase over the last five years. Some of the works featured in these exhibitions were exhibited at Galeri Diani under the title of “Homecoming," attracting great interest last year.
The scope of this exhibition is now expanding. “12cm. Homecoming/Welcoming” is an extended exhibit that welcomes back the Turkish artists who have been showcasing work around Europe, displaying their works alongside those from last year's display. Art lovers can expect a mix of artists both established and upcoming, with many of the works available for purchase. A great seasonal gift idea.
