Taşdelen’s work has been shown in numerous exhibitions internationally, and reviewed in publications including ArtforumFlash ArtArtAsiaPacificCanadian Art and C Magazine. He has been an artist-in-residence at the Delfina Foundation, London; Rupert, Vilnius; and KulturKontakt Austria, Vienna. In 2019, he was long-listed for the Sobey Art Award.
