Yunus Emre Institute in London is delighted to restart their fascinating “Artists in Conversations” series of talks featuring notable contemporary artists, exploring the classical and traditional arts and crafts of Turkey.
Today, we can observe an increased interest in traditional Turkish-Islamic art. However much interesting facts and rituals remain unknown and unspoken about. Each talk will explore the path of a different artist, who will provide an insight into their experience and thoughts shaped by their individual area of art.
For the sixth talk of the series, we are joined by Adam Williamson on Monday 23rd of November 2020 at 18:00 (GMT) as he talks about his artistic journey and the art of Islamic patterns.
