10th International Istanbul Biennial: Nightcomers Screenings

October 17th, 2007 · 1 Comment · 2006 The Stepping Up and...


Our video, The Stepping Up and Going Under Method is currently showing in the 10th International Istanbul Biennial (Sept 8 to Nov 4, 2007), as a part of the Nightcomers exhibition.

For the 10th International Istanbul Biennial, five curators from Turkey have been invited to select over 150 short video works from an open-call to the public. During the nights, the program, under the title of “Nightcomers,” will be projected in public spaces in different parts of the city, from the centre to the periphery. The Dutch artists couple Bik Van der Pol have researched and selected about 25 spots and have designed the mobile projection device.

For the first time in the history of İstanbul Biennial, a real open participation of the public has been made possible so that thousands of people living in areas without access to “high culture” can have direct contact with contemporary art. Or, contemporary art is brought to the frontier of a true public gaze.

    Do you have an Eye for Art?
    I would like to invite you to participate in an exciting research conducted by MIT and ArtForecast.
    The research examines the myth of the term “Eye for Art” by presenting a set of artworks images to various participants.
    Participants are challenged to choose the most promising artwork out of a given set and to try to predict which artwork will be the most valuable in one year.
