The creature revives life, opens up new spaces and creates new powers. Starting from the 1980s, when political and socio-economic transformations took place, Istanbul became a city where artistic activities with international meaning were organized. These events, which have the function of exploring and revealing contemporary artistic developments and visions, have served as magnets for artists and art lovers at international level. They laid the groundwork for exchanging knowledge and experience, reviving and expanding creativity.
On the other hand, we must accept the accuracy of the criticisms that the organization of the activities with a certain historical, sociological, political and philosophical theme is not given the right of the ambitious themes chosen and does not meet the expectations. Because the artist needs time, creativity is influenced by political, economic, social and cultural developments, but may not match their timing and setting. Biennials, which give artists homework, are in danger of shifting from the axis of art in order to emphasize the issue and may move away from artistic satisfaction. Here, with the support of Besiktas Gymnastics Club, “ ALWAYS, EVERYWHERE, IN ANY CONDITION AR under the name of 9 September – 18 OctoberThe purpose of the Istanbul Biennial is to serve artistic interaction by presenting unlimited new examples of creativity from the contemporary art world. Artists from Turkish and foreign countries will exhibit the latest products of contemporary creativity with their special talents.
Try to be in Istanbul on September 9th and not miss this Biennial which will be very meaningful for the cultural world and especially for you.
