The 15th Istanbul Biennial, entitled a good neighbour and curated by the artist duo Elmgreen & Dragset, opens to the public on September 16. The biennial is located in the heart of Istanbul, and can be visited free of charge at six nearby venues within walking distance until November 12, 2017.
Sponsored by Koç Holding and organized by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV), the event brings together artworks by 56 artists from 32 countries dealing with different notions of home and neighbourhood. The exhibitions take place at Istanbul Modern, Galata Greek Primary School, Ark Kültür, Pera Museum, an artist collective’s studio, and Küçük Mustafa Paşa Hammam.
The public programme of the event, coordinated by Zeyno Pekünlü, is set to start during the opening days of the Biennial.
