9th Istanbul Biennial
The 9 th International Istanbul Biennial, one of the most significant contemporary art events in the world, will take place from 16 September to 30 October 2005.
Curators:Vasıf Kortun and Charles Esche
Esche and Kortun are working together on an exhibition structure that folds out of and reveals its context - the city of Istanbul. The title of this Biennial is "Istanbul", referring both to the real urban location and the imaginative charge that this city represents for the world. "Istanbul" as a metaphor, as a prediction, as a lived reality, and an inspiration has many stories to tell and the Biennial will attempt to tap directly into this rich history and possibility.
