Moving Image is welcoming artists, galleries and non-profit institutions in their second edition in Istanbul this fall. Returning to the Kuleli Building at the Halic Congress Center from 4-6 September 2015, Moving Image Istanbul runs in parallel with ArtInternational art fair, and will present a selection of single-channel videos and installations from across the globe.
Highlights of the 2015 Istanbul fair include several world premieres, such as works by Zeyno Pekünlü (Sanatorium, Istanbul), Leo Gabin (Elizabeth Dee Gallery, New York), Carlos Jiménez Cahua (Samsøn Projects, Boston), Wu Ding (L-Art Gallery, Chengdu), and João Castilho (Zipper Galeria, São Paulo). Among the historical selections in the fair are works by Ana Mendieta (Galerie Lelong, New York) and Martha Wilson (P·P·O·W Gallery, New York). Large installations include works by Kon Trubkovich (Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York), and Michael Nyman (Myriam Blundell Projects, London).
Among the special events sponsored by Moving Image Istanbul are ‚Bring Your own Beamer’ (BYOB) at Pera Museum, and a screening of ‚Ways of Something', a project by Lorna Mills, hosted by Transfer Gallery. BYOB is a one-night exhibition/performance by unrepresented, emerging Turkish film and video artists who will take over the ground floor gallery hall of Pera Museum in an improvised installation. Curated by Maybe Art Projects, BYOB at Pera Museum is taking place on Friday, 4 September 2015 from 7-10pm. Transfer Gallery (Brooklyn, NY) will present a special screening of ‚Ways of Something’ compiled by Lorna Mills on Sunday, 6 September 2015, 5-6pm in the Gallerist Lounge at Moving Image.
