We thought it was time to include a plug for Cornucopia, a wonderful resource for discovering so much that is excellent in Turkey.
This twice-yearly magazine on art and culture is augmented with a website with articles, an online store for back-issues and Cornucopia’s book publishing. This week on the website for example you could read about:
- Artists – like part-time Istanbul resident Mike Berg, who has a new exhibition at Galeri Nev
- Exhibitions in Istanbul, Ankara, and elsewhere – including the Ai Weiwei porcelain exhibition at the Sabanci Museum ai-weiwei-porcelain, which has been extended to April 15th, the Leonardo da Vinci Expo at Uniq in Maslak until April 7th, and a review of an exhbition in Dubai by Turkish artist Hale Tanger.
- Books – such as The Palace Lady’s Summerhouse and other inside stories from a vanishing Turkey which is a collection of articles for Cornucopia by Patricia Daunt, long-term resident and wife of the former British ambassador. Daunt writes about the wooden houses on the Bosphorus shore and other splendid buildings of Turkey.
- Neighbourhoods such as the Üsküdar district of Selimiye, where Florence Nightingale nursed soldiers from the Crimean War.
There are articles about restaurants such as the Turkish restaurant Zara in Hampstead, London, film festivals, cinemas, textiles, more exhibitions, more artists, more photographers, and much more art and culture of all kinds, while visitors to Turkey, and enthusiastic residents like ourselves, can plan their days with Cornucopia’s Cultural Guide and their What’s On guide.
We hope you read and enjoy this great resource.
