The Fine Arts Department of our university prepared the "Taşı-n-ma" exhibition as one of the 15th Istanbul Biennial neighboring events through a collaboration with the Nomadic Independent Artist Initiative. The exhibition brings artists from different disciplines together with an interpretation of the theme of "Portative". Portative means easy to carry, mobile, foldable, and portable.

With a different meaning, it implies that there is the possibility of dismantling and setting up elsewhere. Leonardo moved the famous Mona Lisa painting around for more than 10 years and worked on it until his death. We can think of this as the first example of portable art by evaluating it in a portative category. Within the frame of the exhibition, artists act with a nomadic spirit and are flexible with respect to time and space. Thus, the definition of "Portative Art" emerges and this concept opens a new avenue for artists. This structure, which is created by necessities, is supported with new thoughts and brings with it various problems.
