Creators at Home #3: Sinan Tuncay


May 20, 2020



Open To Public

Our beloved event series Yeni Yaratıcılar, moderated by Yalçın Pembecioğlu co-organized by ATÖLYE and Bigumigu is turning virtual! The new event sub-series titled “Evdeki Yaratıcılar” – Creators at Home, brings together new discoveries with former guests, focusing on the creative processes, inspiration and personal stories of artists and designers in the period of pandemic and social isolation.


The third guest of the series is artist and director Sinan Tuncay. Sinan received his MFA from the School of Visual Arts in Photography, Video and Related Media. His work was exhibited internationally and was acquired in private collections and by public institutions such as the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, Musée de l’Elysée and Odunpazarı Museum of Modern Art. His first solo exhibition, “I’m Sorry, Leyla” opened in New York in 2016. The same year, he was awarded a fellowship by the New York Foundation for the Arts.


The acclaimed music video projects Sinan designed and directed for Turkish recording artists Sezen Aksu, Sertab Erener, Mabel Matiz and Gaye Su Akyol were awarded ‘The Best Music Video of The Year’ by prestigious institutions. In 2019, his third solo show “Reserved for the Men I’ve Never Became” was opened in Istanbul. Sinan lives and works between New York City and Istanbul.
