Ebru Esra Satıcı



Country: Turkey


Ebru Esra Sat?c? is a curator at Me?her. Before this she worked at the Research Center for Anatolian Civilizations (ANAMED) Gallery in Istanbul from 2014 2019. The ANAMED Gallery acts as a bridge between the research centre and the public, presenting the centre’s research to a wider audience, and its exhibitions are mostly outcomes of the Center’s academic projects, accompanied by scholarly publications.

Esra is part of the panel selecting guest curator’s exhibition proposals, and in her role, she works closely with the guest exhibition curators, as the representative of the institution. Esra creates all formal writing for the exhibition and engages in curatorial research, as well as dealing with exhibition installation, loans and all practicalities of exhibition preparation. She is also responsible for the public programming accompanying each exhibition (panels, symposia and talks).

Esra studied philosophy, history of art, and performance studies, and is particularly interested in visitor experience and perception in museums and galleries.

While attending the International Training Programme in 2015, Esra was based in the Department of Greece and Rome. Her UK Partner placement was spent with Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums, Newcastle.

Esra’s exhibition project proposal was entitled William Pars’ Ephesus: An 18th Century Drawing and a World Heritage Site.

Esra’s place on the International Training Programme was generously supported by the Aall Foundation.
