  • A Street Art Overview As Istanbul Welcomes Banksy

     

    Cover image: Banksy

    The premiere of “The Art of Banksy” takes place in Istanbul on January 14. The biggest collection of Banksy’s works welcomes art enthusiasts at Global Karaköy. The exhibition curated by Steve Lazarides features 100 works borrowed from the artist’s private collection as well as his collectors and the viewers experience the artworks in various spatial arrangements selected from England. But why is Banksy so important? What is street art? We want to remember it with an overview.

    The first examples of graffiti consist of slogans depicted with simple lines on walls and from this viewpoint its history goes back as far as WWII. Street Art was born with the works of artists who wanted to be independent from the art networks of museums and galleries for a direct artwork-viewer encounter. It was in its beginning stages during 1960s, it reached maturity in 1970s and particularly in 1980s it became a rising star in New York.
    This genre which is in close relationship to the social developments of its era, aims at provoking, reacting, catching up with the present day and giving messages to the masses.

    Thanks to the experiments by artists including Keith Haring, Jean Michel Basquiat, Richard Hambleton and René Moncada during 1980s, street art distanced itself from text and gained a more painterly structure.

    In the 21st century, Street Art began to enter into museums and art fairs, to find widespread visibility in galleries, in other words, to become part of and be domesticated by the art scene dynamics that it criticizes, which became the central topic of very ardent debates. Banksy, on the other hand, is probably the only contemporary artist gaining the star status next to Jeff Koons or Ai Weiwei and whose name is well known even to those not particularly interested in the subject. Make sure you see Banksy’s works, and we strongly recommend you to read the biographical book at our Artlog library before you visit the show.

  • Contemporary İstanbul Fuarı Başlıyor

    12-15 Kasım 2015, Lütfü Kırdar Kongre & Sergi Sarayı ve İstanbul Kongre Merkezi

  • 14. İstanbul Bienali’nden İzlenimler Vol. 2: Beyoğlu-Tophane’de Bienal ve Diğer Sanat Etkinlikleri

    İpek Yeğinsü

    Beyoğlu ve Tophane’de birçok sanat mekânı 14. İstanbul Bienali’ne ev sahipliği yapıyor. İlk olarak Arter’de Bracha L. Ettinger’in tuval üzerine yağlıboya ve elektrostatik baskı gibi farklı teknikleri birleştiren yapıtları akla bilinçaltı ve bellek gibi olguları getiriyor. (Vol.1 için tıklayın)

    Ettinger

    Bracha L. Ettinger, Arter. Fotoğraf: B. L. Ettinger.

    Öte yandan burada en çarpıcı işlerden biri Mikro Makro 1001 Çizim ile Christine Taylor Patten’a ait. Sanatçının mürekkeple ürettiği 2,5 x 2,5 cm’lik çizimler oluş/süreç kavramını ele alıyor ve bir noktadan yola çıkıp dalgalar halinde ilerleyen bir dönüşüm ortaya koyuyor. Arter’in galeri katı boyunca sıralanan işlere Patten’ın Imagine adlı büyük bir çizimi eşlik ediyor.

    20150911_162748

    Christine Taylor Patten, Arter. Fotoğraf: İ. Yeğinsü.

    Pera Müzesi’nde bienal kapsamında Ania Soliman’ın Bir Çizimler Serisi ve Şeyin İçinde Hiçbir Şey Yok adlı yerleştirmesini izlemek mümkün. Çizimden üç boyutlu objeye uzanan birçok mecrayı birleştiren Soliman antropolojiyle yakından ilgileniyor ve insan-nesne ilişkisinin zaman içinde nasıl tanımlandığı üzerine düşünce alanı açıyor. Salt Galata’da ise Zeyno Pekünlü’nün Minima Akademika/Magnus adlı işi son derece ilginç. Devam eden projenin ütopik ve asla gerçekleşmeyecek bir amacı var: dünyadaki tüm akademik bilgiyi öğrencilerin sınavlardan sonra buruşturup attığı gerçek kopya kağıtları üzerinden derlemek.

    solimanpera-iksv

    Salt Beyoğlu’nda bienalden bağımsız olarak gerçekleşen “Nerden Geldik Buraya?” da görülmeye değer. Sergi, 1980 sonrasında Türkiye’de izlenen neoliberal politikaları, paralelinde gelişen toplumsal yapıyı ve tüm bu dinamiklerin popüler kültüre yansımasını dönem sineması, dergiler, televizyon programları gibi mecralar üzerinden irdeliyor. Serginin 80’li yıllara meraklı izleyiciler için en güzel sürprizi artistik patinaj efsanesi Katarina Witt’in Michael Jackson’ın Bad şarkısı eşliğinde 1988 Calgary Olimpiyatları’nda sunduğu tarihe geçen gösterisi kuşkusuz. Bir diğer dikkat çekici yapıt da Barış Doğrusöz’ün Paris vakti: Harita ve Topraklar adlı yerleştirmesi. Yapıt 12 Eylül 1980 ile Türksat 1B’nin uzaya gönderildiği 11 Ağustos 1994 tarihleri arasında Fransız televizyonlarında Türkiye ile ilgili olarak yayınlanan haberlerin derlendiği videolar ile haberlerde kullanılan Türkiye haritalarının veri görselleştirme mantığıyla sergilendiği baskı işlerden oluşuyor.

    Tophane’de Cevdet Erek’in ses yerleştirmesi  Bir Ritim Mekanı yakında yıkılacak bir garajı ses ve mimari ögeler aracılığıyla dönüştürüyor. Özel İtalyan Lisesi’nin farklı katlarında bulunan İz Öztat & Fatma Belkıs, Esra Ersen, Elena Mazzi, Cheng Ran ve Irena Haiduk’un yapıtlarını da bu her zaman girmenin mümkün olmadığı binada görmeden geçmeyin. Özellikle Öztat ve Belkıs’ın Suyu Kim Taşır isimli çalışması Loç Vadisi’nde yapılması düşünülen hidroelektrik santraline direnen halka yöreye özgü tülbentlerle selam duruyor ve elektrik enerjisi kullanılmadan da üretim yapılabileceğinin altını çiziyor.

    Bienalin görece periferide kalan bir diğer ilginç durağı Küçük Mustafa Paşa Hamamı. Burada başarılı sanatçı Wael Shawky’nin Cabaret Crusades III: The Secrets of Karbala adlı video çalışması mutlaka görülmeli. Mekanın atmosferiyle birleşerek izleyiciyi kuşatan yapıt, Haçlı Seferleri’ni bir Arabın gözünden anlatan bir seri filmin üçüncüsü. İşin en çarpıcı yönü de sanatçının kahramanlarını cam kuklalar olarak seçmesi ve çekimlerde kırk kişilik bir ekibin görev yapması.

    Bienalin son günleri yaklaşırken bu heyecan verici sergileri kaçırmayın. Sanat etkinliklerinden haberdar olmak için Art50.net e-bültene üye olmayı ve fuar, bienal gibi etkinlikleri sizler için derlediğimiz Artlog sayfamızı düzenli olarak ziyaret etmeyi unutmayın.

  • Frieze London

    Highlights from the Fair and Art Events in London during Frieze Week

    As in every year, Frieze London, one of the world’s most important contemporary art fairs, offers an outstanding program at the Regent’s Park in October 14-17. Featuring international galleries such as A Gentil Carioca from Brazil, Esther Schipper/Johnen and Buchholz from Germany, Leo Xu from China and Taka Ishii from Japan alongside the star galleries of New York and London, the event has among this year’s participants Rampa from Turkey and Istanbul and London-based Rodeo.

    On the first day of the fair the contemporary art section drew more audience than Frieze Masters. At the entrance the visitors were greeted with the wall text “Overcome your challenges or they will reappear” ve “Don’t Stop Now—The End is Near”.
    In addition to the film screenings and panel talks held every year, Frieze’s innovative program is remarkably rich. Focus featuring new talents, Live consisting of performances, Sculpture Park presenting works by 16 artists in an area accessible to the general public and this year’s Sound causing excitement via three sound installations are all prepared under the consultancy of world famous curators. On the other hand Frieze Projects, the fair’s non-proft section realized with the support of LUMA Foundation presents the works by artists commissioned specifically for the fair.

    Affordable art was not forgotten either. Allied Editions features special editions of works from famous galleries, whose prices go as low as 40 gbp.

    Various art events taking place throughout London during Frieze are also worthy of visit:

    • Royal Academy of Arts, “Ai Weiwei”: The retrospective by Ai Weiwei, one of the leading artists of our era, is a must-see.
    • Tate Modern, “The World Goes Pop”: Do not miss this occasion if you want to look at Pop Art produced around the world during the 60s and 70s from a different perspective.

    • Serpentine Gallery, “Jimmie Durham: Various Items and Complaints”: The American artist, poet and acvitist Durham has a prominent place in the art world with his career spanning over five decades. Durham’s exhibition whom we may also remember from the 13th Istanbul Biennial focuses on the artist’s multidisciplinary and conceptual practice.
    • Victoria Miro Gallery, “Go to Hell or Atlanta, Whichever Comes First”: The exhibition features works by the American artist Kara Walker’s ironic artworks, inspired by her time in Atlanta and departing from the gallery space itself.
    • Whitechapel Gallery, “Emily Jacir: Europa”: Awarded with the Venice Biennale Golden Lion in 2007, the Palestinian artist Emily Jacir’s  poetic works about migration, exchange and resistance illustrate her perspective of Europe and the Mediterranean.
