Moving Image Istanbul 2014 Participating Artists /Galleries & Non-Profit Institutions

September 25-28, 2014

Moving Image art fair is very pleased to announce the artists and participating galleries and non-profit institutions in our inaugural edition in Istanbul. Being held in the Kuleli Building at the Halic Congress Center, September 25-28, 2014, 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. Moving Image has been conceived to offer a viewing experience with the excitement and vitality of a fair, while allowing moving-image-based artworks to be understood and appreciated on their own terms.
Highlights of the 2014 Istanbul fair include several world premeires, including videos by Şener Özmen (PİLOT Gallery, Istanbul); Jonathan Monaghan (Curator's Office, Washington DC); Shaun Gladwell (Mark Moore Gallery, Culver City); and Nancy Atakan & Volkan Aslan (5533, Istanbul). Single-channel videos at the fair include works by Nino Cais (Central Galeria de Arte, Sao Paulo); Chen Tianzhuo (Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai), and Mounir Fatmi (Galerie Analix Forever, Paris). Among the historical films in the fair are works by David Wojnarowicz (P•P•O•W, New York) and Leslie Thornton (Winkleman Gallery, New York). Several large installations include works by Wolfgang Staehle (Postmasters, New York); Hans Op de Beeck (Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York); Basim Magdy (artSümer, Istanbul); and Sue de Beer (Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York).
Among the special events sponsored by Moving Image Istanbul are "Bring Your own Beamer" (BYOB) at Pera Museum, a one-night exhibition/performance by unrepresented, emerging Turkish film and video artists who will take over the fifth floor gallery hall of Pera Musuem in an improvised installation. Curated by Fatma Çolakoğlu and Ulya Soley, BYOB at Pera Museum runs 19:00-22:00, Saturday, September 27, 2014. Also Mari Spirito, Founding Director of Protocinema, will host a screening and conversation with emerging artist Atalay Yavuz, who works with readily available materials. This events will take place at Moving Image on Saturday, September 27, 16:00–17:30.
