Running from 1 September until 11 October 2015, the exhibition '(re)present exhibist: 2 years' marks the second anniversary of exhibist magazine showcasing 14 of the up-and-coming artists featured in the publication. The show presents a diverse selection of contemporary art from Turkey, including sculpture, installation, drawing, photography, video works and digital art. As a visual chronicle of the last two years of the magazine, the show illustrates exhibist’s intent to be a platform for contemporary art from Turkey. Running parallel to the 14th Istanbul Biennial and taking place in proximity to a number of the main Biennial venues, it encourages visitors to explore new possible understandings and interpretations of the featured artists’ works. (re)present exhibist: 2 years is part of exhibist’s objective to continuously extend its reach — from the growing international circulation to artist talks and exhibitions.

Mixer is a place that fuels creativity, dialogue and critical thinking, making it the perfect venue for this exhibition. exhibist and Mixer share the same objectives of supporting emerging contemporary artists from Turkey by opening up the Istanbul art scene to the world and encouraging critical writing in Turkey as well as responding to the local scene’s youthful, inventive dynamism.

exhibist is currently the only independent, non-profit English-language magazines focusing on contemporary art from Turkey and is sold internationally in more than 25 locations across Europe, North America and Asia. Since its launch as an online platform in 2013, it has also become one of the most popular art magazines in Istanbul. Every issue, printed quarterly, includes extensive features on up-and-coming Turkish artists, analytical essays, overviews of established artists from Turkey and provides information on Galleries featuring Turkish Contemporary Art, as well as related exhibitions and events.

14th Istanbul Biennial opening soon

The 14th Istanbul Biennial titled SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms, organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and drafted by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev with a number of alliances, will be open to the public from 5 September to 1 November 2015. The exhibition will take place in over 30 venues on the European and Asian sides of the Bosphorus, from the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, from Beyoğlu to Büyükada, from Rumelifeneri to the old city and from Şişli to Kadıköy.

“With and through art, we commit ourselves to the possibility of joy and vitality, leaping from form to flourishing life. SALTWATER: A Theory of Thought Forms looks for where to draw the line, to draw upon, and to draw out, through organic and non-linear forms that connect research in art with other knowledges. It does so offshore, on the flat surfaces with our fingertips, but also in the depths, underwater, before the enfolded encoding unfolds. A number of drawings, paintings, installations, films, objects, books, collaborations, and research-based events will be viewable as thought forms – waves or oscillating patterns of repeating and differing lines that structure and enfold all forms of transference of energy – from brain waves to shockwaves after an explosion, from sound waves and waves of water to electromagnetic waves of different lengths and frequencies, including radio waves and light.” (Christov-Bakargiev)

Christov-Bakargiev is the Edith Kreeger Wolf Distinguished Visiting Professor in Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University (2013–15), Getty Visiting Research Scholar (2015), and was recently appointed as Director of Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea and GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino, commencing on January 1, 2016. Previously, she was the artistic director of dOCUMENTA (13) (2012); the artistic director of the 16th Biennale of Sydney Revolutions—Forms That Turn (2008); and senior curator at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, a MoMA affiliate, from 1999 to 2001.

Some of Christov-Bakargiev’s interlocutors and alliances are Anna Boghiguian, Arlette Quynh-Anh Tran, Aslı Çavuşoğlu, Cevdet Erek, Chus Martínez, Emin Özsoy, Elvan Zabunyan, Emre Hüner, Füsun Onur, Griselda Pollock, Marcos Lutyens, Pierre Huyghe, Vilayanur Subramanian Ramachandran, and William Kentridge.

Novelist Orhan Pamuk is the Honorary Chairman of the International Council of Friends and Patrons of the 14th Istanbul Biennial.

The Istanbul Biennial advisory board members include Adriano Pedrosa, Başak Şenova, İnci Eviner, Iwona Blazwick, and Ute Meta Bauer.

The 14th Istanbul Biennial is made possible thanks to the sponsorship of Koç Holding and with further patronage from a number of other supporters, international funders, and funding bodies.

Art International 2015 - 5,6 September 2015

Through the support of the Catalan government, twelve galleries from Art Barcelona (Associació de Galeries) will participate in the fair, including ADN GALERÍA, ÀNGELS BARCELONA, GALERIA JOAN GASPAR, MIGUEL MARCUS GALLERY, N2 GALERÍA, POLIGRAFA OBRA GRÁFICA, GALERIA JOAN PRATS, GALERIA SICART, GALERIA SENDA, GALERIA CARLES TACHÉ PROJECTS, GALERIA TRAMA and VALID FOTO BCN GALLERY.

Stephane Ackermann, Artistic Director of ARTINTERNATIONAL has curated a series of performances, installations and interventions for the 2015 edition. This year’s programme will present works by seven artists what will be presented across the fair.

Artist and photographer Ali Taptik will present a series of images, titled ‘It’s Not Fair’. The work examines the incongruous nature of being an artist, where daily encounters and situations cut across class and social boundaries. Taptik’s images range from encounters between workers and bosses, to strolls through penthouses and construction sites. Captured over a number of years without the intention of being included as a single body of work, the artist adds a further layer to the imagery by obscuring the faces and identities of his subjects – inserting in their place his own notes about the specific people including personal details that defy generalized classifications.

New York and Istanbul-based artist Arslan Sukan will draw parallels between the fashion and art scene, examining the frequently complicit relationship these two industries share in the context of the art fair. Developing work whilst at ARTINTERNATIONAL, Sukan will document the fair via a style reporter, capturing dealers, collectors and visitors alike over the course of the fair.

Berlin-based artist Burcak Konukman will be presenting his performance ‘I am an independent artist’ – a nomadic fair booth will be moving from one place to another during the fair, symbolizing his career and international voyages he has to make to create his performances.

Artist Dominique Petitgand will present a sound installation based on sound diffused with voices, noises, music and silences. The work will be presented in a dark room at the fair to enhance the short stereo sound pieces, which consist of spoken words, sound, music and silence. Fragments of stories, monologues, descriptions, exhalations, miniature landscapes, close and far sounds follow each other. Each session is structured by silences (inside the pieces and between them).. Every spoken word in French is accompanied by its oral translation, in English: this added translation becomes a new sound element of the composition and constitutes a form of commentary, at once incarnated and suggestive.

Istanbul-based artist Hera Büyüktaşcıyan will present Falling Waters, a dramatic installation, which will stretch from the fair’s screening room through to the main hall.

New York based artist Maya Hayuk will be presenting one of her large-scale murals, which speak of the artist’s obsession with symmetry, perfect imperfection and outer and inner space and blend the traditional and the contemporary into works which appear as harmonic, dissonant and optimistic compositions.

Additional highlights of the programme include the debut of MOVE, a wry performance by the Berlin-based artist Nevin Aladağ, taking place in and around the fair, that explores the social ritual of moving and engaging in public space.
