Bozlu Art Project, which is located in Istanbul's Nişantaşı neighborhood, is holding a group exhibition titled "Fear," which is open until Aug. 31, despite the slow art scene during summer. Curated by Özlem İnay Erten, the exhibition features work from 12 artists from different disciplines created around the theme of fear. Fear is a theme that has affected artists and their work for time immemorial. The need to define or describe, or even overcome, fear has inspired artists and has encouraged them to question for centuries. From cave paintings to the masks of several early societies, from Edvard Munch's "Scream" to Goya's "The Third of May 1808," fear is a subject that can be seen in countless works of art throughout history. This is a situation that is still effectual. Our fears still affect all features of life and they affect the artwork of our times, as well. Bozlu Art Project's "Fear" aims to display fear's effect on the individual as well as social life by gathering work from 12 artists who ask questions about researching this individual and sociological feeling.

When: Until Aug. 31

Where: Bozlu Art Project Nişantaşı
