About BBA Gallery
BBA Gallery works with emerging and mid-career artists. These are industry terms, labels that help simplify complexity. Artists don’t need a label – they need a champion: a committed gallery who kicks doors for them, introduces their work to collectors, and shares their vision with the world.
That’s why BBA Gallery launched in 2017. They find and represent artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision, and a compelling style. Age or education are not the most important criteria. BBA Gallery is more interested in authenticity, perseverance, professionalism, and outstanding artworks, no matter the medium.
BBA Gallery began as an artist-run project space in 2015. The ethos has been clear since then – to seek out talented and passionate artists and give them all the nurture they need.

The Field Kitchen Academy is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef, and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.
Deadline: 23 Jun 2019
A total of ten residents will be accepted to join the upcoming Field Kitchen Academy in its two modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı under the title of Silence with the Consent of Sound, residents will use the notion of silence in sound as a gateway to opening various sensory experiences. Residents will experiment towards transgressing the well-accustomed idea that silence, as used as a “sound” component in sound art and music, creates an aspect of empowering the work itself by making it stronger. Use of silence can accentuate the other frequencies. At the same time, sound might accentuate the silence further. Silence in sound creates a passage to other senses of the body. With silence, the journey with sound enables quick shifts and glitches from auditory senses to the enhanced senses of sight, touch, smell, and taste.
Composed of two intertwined modules, the educational residency offers ten residents through applications from artists, chefs, and other creative minds to address these issues.
The ten selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first three weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do Nothing.
The selection process will be pursued by a jury including Mario Asef, Ursula Block, Cevdet Erek, Brandon Labelle, and Ece Pazarbaşı.

Emerging gallery programs, project spaces, and artists are invited to apply for the Berliner Liste 2016 fair.
Deadline: 30 Jun 2016
The 13th edition of Berliner Liste will be held from September 15th to 18th, 2016, parallel to Berlin Art Week, in the legendary Kraftwerk Berlin. The unique, raw, and urban atmosphere of Kraftwerk in Berlin Mitte, the former East Berlin power station, is the ideal location for Berlin’s oldest and biggest art fair.
Unlike most of the major art fairs which are open mainly to art galleries, Berliner Liste 2016 offers individual artists and photographers access to a large and long-established art market. As an exhibitor, artists will get the opportunity to perform side by side with galleries and project spaces, present art to an audience of specialists as well as to the general public, and offer works for sale.
As a forum for emerging, international art at affordable prices, the Berliner Liste attracts every year a wider audience. 123 exhibitors from 23 countries presented their work to more than 11,000 young collectors, art lovers, and fans at last year’s show.
