- Not All That Falls Has Wings
Istanbul’s art aficionados will enjoy a new exhibition at contemporary arts center Arter between June 9 and 18.
Curated Selen Ansen, the display features artworks by Bas Jan Ader, Phyllida Barlow and Cyprien Gaillard as well as Ryan Gander.
“Devised around notions of ‘gravity’ and ‘gravitas,’ the exhibition will bring together works that disturb perceptual habits, cultural and social edifices and comfort zones of knowledge,” Arter said.
“Taking inspiration from post-mythical falls and downfalls, the show will focus on concepts such as ‘sublime’ and failure! To explore our contemporary ways of seeking grandeur and address the possibility for novel fields of experience,” it added.
