This year’s biennial focuses on the impact of human activities upon our planet. One of the results of this impact is the formation of a huge mass of waste that has been called ‘the Seventh Continent’, – 3.4 million square kilometres, 7 million tons of floating plastic in the Pacific Ocean. The 16th Istanbul Biennial will explore this new continent: a world where humans and non-humans, our mass-productive systems and natural elements, drift together, reduced to particles of waste.
Curated by Nicolas Bourriaud, the 16th Istanbul Biennial entitled The Seventh Continent, will feature the work of more than 60 artists. See the programme and venues here.
As part of the events taking place simultaneously with the 16th Istanbul Biennial, UK artist Monster Chetwynd installed an imaginative, immersive and permanent playground in the shape of a giant Gorgon’s head in Maçka Art Park on 13 September. Find out the details here.
