Istanbul, the main cultural hub of Turkey, is hosting the first independent tiennial in the title of "The Secret Language of the City" in scope of Istanbul`s "European Capital of Culture".
The event will continue until 19 September in Kadikoy's Sanat Limani (Port of Art). It will be displayed in Eminonu Hunkar Kasri and Taksim Metro Station between 4-24 October.
This first activity of Triennial to be organized every three years is presented under title of "The Secret Language of the City" with the participation of twenty five local artists. 1st International Istanbul Triennial is conceived and initiated to have an international character in its next version.
Paintings, photographs, arrangements, statues and video productions around the concepts of “solitude and alienation” will be exhibited at Sanat Limanı Sept. 2-19 under the title “Secret Language of the City.”
In its geography, Istanbul is surely the most productive and attractive city when it comes to contemporary art phenomena. Yet, in today`s Istanbul, the creation, production and consumption of art is being perceived and presented as if it is confined to a small, isolated elite. This out of age, pseudo-class driven interpretation of Turkish art scene is one of the key problems of modern Turkey and clearly mismatches Istanbul`s European Capital of Culture assertion and its global cultural characteristics.
The artists of the Independent Art Association, working in different disciplines of art, propose a solution-oriented approach to the seemingly unsolvable problems of our society by setting free from all prejudice, and giving ear to the undercurrent sound lingering in the memory of the city.
