“The gallery, which always moves forward from its inception, despite some tides. And, does not deviate from challenging contemporary art scene of our country now, celebrates its 40th year anniversary. This is a pretty big achievement in a society with many short-lived institutions. With an archive book of the gallery and the documentation of all its events, the 40 years of the process will be honored. How nice! Thus, we will have the opportunity to observe all the actors. On this occasion, I greet the iconic name Rabia Çapa who is identified with her gallery and I want to be able to wish many more 40 years.”
