Haliç Congress Centre, Istanbul
September 25-28, 2014
Moving Image co-founders Murat Orozobekov and Edward Winkleman explained, With this expansion to the very exciting and burgeoning art market in Istanbul, the gateway between Europe and the Middle East, Moving Image seeks to broaden the international scope of its mission to connect more of the collectors, curators, and dealers supporting contemporary artists working in moving-image-based media.
Kathleen Forde, Artistic Director of Borusan Contemporary Istanbul and a member of the Moving Image Curatorial Advisory Committee, elaborated on the choice of Istanbul, "As a longtime fan and advisor for the Moving Image Art Fair in New York, I am thrilled to hear that it will be launched in Istanbul this year. The Istanbul art scene has had a definitive international boom in recent years which appears only to be continuing to gain momentum. Moving Image has always been forward thinking across the board from concept, to timing, to location and of course in the work it presents ...so it is in line with their progressive paradigms to be coming to Istanbul at this time. Perfect timing, as always! I am really looking forward to seeing the fair in this special context."
We are delighted that Moving Image Istanbul will be produced alongside ArtInternational. Dyala Nusseibeh, Director of ArtInternational in Istanbul, noted, It is with great pleasure that we announce the presence of Moving Image alongside ArtInternational this year. Istanbul lends itself magnificently to such an initiative the demand for internationally celebrated art is high here and our experience with ArtInternational's own screening program has shown us that video works are particularly appreciated. We are really happy to be able to welcome this dynamic new element alongside our Fair. I'm grateful to Yesim Turanli of Pi Artworks, a member of ArtInternational's Selection Committee, who initially suggested this collaboration last March. It seemed immediately a wonderful idea and I congratulate Murat and Edward for seeing it through and taking the decision to expand into this exciting market.
