The Moving Museum Istanbul

28 October - 14 December '14

Over the past 3 months The Moving Museum saw 35 international artists join 11 local artists in Istanbul in a period of intensive research, production, and public engagement, and each artist was commissioned to engage in a major new work during their time in the city.

The artists represents a generation of practitioners working seamlessly across disciplines and borders, displacing aesthetics and redefining best practices against a backdrop of constant change. The exhibition serves to articulate these approaches through the locus of Istanbul, a city echoing this artistic flux, and whose questions and promises embody a microcosm of compatible concerns.

As an artist focused initiative, The MovingMuseum held a series of workshops led by resident artists exploring the form and structure of the residency and exhibition. The workshops explored the desires, inspirations and challenges risen from this process of exchange; of installing and establishing a nomadic structure in Istanbul, of understanding the complex web of politics underpinning the life and peoples in the city, and of research and production and working towards creating reciprocal moments.

Through these various discussions and ongoing criticality it was collectively decided that the exhibition would establish a forum for individual perspectives, with artists entering on distinct terms, culminating in a space that seeks to stress the possibility of contradictions and multi-perspectivity, and to highlight the individual approach each artist has developed within the residency. With this in mind, the exhibition will reflects the structure of its process and will create a space for discovery and possibility.

Recently completed this year, Sishane Otopark is an important urban planning project, a rare example of a public space in Istanbul situated in the heart of the city directly beside Galata Tower. With a direct link toSishane Metro Station from within the complex, the exhibition will embed itself within the fabric of the city and public circulation.
