Since then, she has held several solo exhibitions and participated in many group exhibitions in Turkey and abroad.

Founded in 2007, Delfina Foundation promotes cross-cultural dialogue and artistic experimentation creating opportunities for emerging and established artists, curators and writers to reflect on what they do, position their practice within relevant global discourse, create career-defining research and commissions, and network with colleagues. They forge international collaborations to build shared platforms to incubate, to present and to discuss common practices and themes.
