The exhibition, which can be visited at Sakıp Sabancı Museum from December 26, 2023, to April 28, 2024, provides an in-depth look into the life and art of Melek Celâl, who displayed her first nude works at the Galatasaray Exhibitions in 1924 and held her first solo exhibition in 1935. The exhibition comprises Celâl’s paintings, sketches, designs inspired by Anatolian motifs, articles on urban planning, calligraphy, and Turkish embroideries, as well as a rich archive including critiques, books, and photographs.
