20/08/2016 (Sabah – Turkey): Last Thursday, when temperatures in Istanbul started rising again and the locals seemed fed up with the humid weather, I found myself in Narmanlı, a historic building at the intersection of Maçka Street and Teşvikiye. On the second floor of this exquisite Istanbul apartment, I approached the doors of Ariel, an art gallery that offered visitors a few hours of refuge. Inside the gallery I was surprised to come across an exhibition with the curious title “Almanac 01.” As readers, we are accustomed to see almanacs from magazines and newspapers at the end of the calendar year. But it is not every day one sees an almanac prepared by an art gallery.”Almanac 01 gathers six exhibitions realized in the season of 2015-16 at Ariel,” according to the exhibition program. “Certain works from the exhibitions, posters, videos, images from the panels, texts, quotes, books, booklets and all the documentation come together to compose a polyphonic music this time.”..
