At the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia, Tepta Illuminates the Project, Shift, Located at Turkish Pavilion
Spanning between May 26 and November 26, 2018, the 16th International Architecture Exhibition, la Biennale di Venezia, will highlight the main exhibition, Freespace, curated by Yvonne Farrell and Shelley McNamara, along with exhibitions of 65 countries at Arsenale and Giardini including a Turkish Pavilion.
Coordinated by Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV), Turkish Pavilion boasts the project, The Shift, which is curated by Kerem Piker and supported by assistant curators Cansu Cürgen, Yelta Köm, Nizam Onur Sönmez, Yağız Söylev and Erdem Tüzün.
The project is designed as a meeting, encounter, and production space by the curatorial team. Organized with a sense of free working space, the pavilion will host a number of workshops, presentations and lectures.
Acting as a constant space for education, the pavilion will display the ever growing and expanding exhibition content.
An important factor for the atmosphere of the space is the lighting application.
TEPTA is the sole provider of lighting products, lighting scenarios and supervision of the project based on the instructions of the curatorial team.

Cooperating with tens of manufacturers and brands operating in the region between Murano Island, Venice and Treviso, TEPTA acts as the lighting solution partner for many great projects designed by people specialized in decorative and architectural lighting.
Offering products for and having experience in professional lighting of cultural and arts projects along with architectural ones, TEPTA considers it as a social responsibility to support projects in these fields.
