Istanbul Biennial , Istanbul, Turkey
05 Sep 2014 - 01 Nov 2014
The 14th Istanbul Biennial (5 September–1 November 2015), organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts, will be drafted by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev with a number of alliances. She will seek the artistic advice of Cevdet Erek, the intellectual rigor of Griselda Pollock, the sensitivity of Pierre Huyghe, the curatorial imagination of Chus Martinez, the mindfulness of Marcos Lutyens, the acute gaze of Füsun Onur, the political philosophies of Anna Boghiguian, the youthful enthusiasm of Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran, the wise uncertainties of William Kentridge and manifold qualities and agencies to come as the process develops.
“The Istanbul Biennial,” according to Christov-Bakargiev, “will embark looking for where to draw the line, to withdraw, to draw upon, and to draw out. It will do so offshore, on the flat surfaces with our fingertips but also in the depths, underwater, before the enfolded encoding unfolds.”
The Istanbul Biennial advisory board members include Adriano Pedrosa, Ba?ak ?enova, ?nci Eviner, Iwona Blazwick, and Ute Meta Bauer.
The 14th Istanbul Biennial is organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts and sponsored by Koç Holding and other supporters, international funders, and funding bodies to be announced.
The conceptual framework of the 14th Istanbul Biennial will be announced at a press meeting to be held in fall 2014.
