-Between Art and Physical Space
Turkey’s culture capital is set to host an exhibition by the Japanese tech-art collective teamLab through August 21 at Borusan Contemporary.
Curated by Charles Merewether, the exhibition is titled “Between Art and Physical Space,” and will take visitors on a “journey beyond that of the world of anime and manga, a world of moving images you can both touch and change,” said the organizers.
“Watch the tumbling waterfall or waves that seem to move across the room, flowers bloom, or make butterflies appear and disappear,” it added.
