Moleskine Detour Exhibition, Istanbul
I'll be the only Moly-Xer at the Moleskine Detour Exhibition Opening tomorrow night— an art-filled show show of 50 artists' Moleskines and 30 Mollies from Istanbul Bilgi University, Domus Academy Milano-Roma and myDetour Berlin, held of course, in my fair city of Istanbul.
Detour is a travelling show of creativity contained within the covers of a Moleskine. I've been told that Istanbul City Moleskines were given to students at Bilgi University to fill with drawings, collages, designs and writings of their personal Istanbul. I can't wait to see all the artwork and I'm thrilled to be going to the opening. I'll be there with one of the talented participants, Aslı Aydın, writer of the übercool blog Trendiary, and Ilgin Yorulmaz, editor of the fabulous (and very useful!) Pukka Living, an online guide to unique and hip Istanbul.
The exhibition is being held at santralistanbul from May 22 through June 21,
open from 10 am to 8pm.
