Borusan Music House Istanbul
“Untold Unwritten: Fourth Show” presents never-before-seen works of nine artists working at the ArtCenter/Istanbul residency program which started its activities in 2009 with the initiative of the Borusan Kocabıyık Foundation to provide a platform for communication, sharing and discussion on a national and international scale. The program offers artists
under 35 years of age studio space for a period of two years.
ArtCenter/Istanbul is the only institution in Turkey offering a studio to young artists thereby supporting continued artistic production and it also presents the works produced during the artists’ residency to the public in annual exhibitions. In this respect, these exhibitions held at the Borusan Music House are quite different from what we know as group shows.
The works created in the ArtCenter studios required different production processes and depended solely on the outcome of their makers’ ideas, therefore it was impossible to bring them together under a single concept as is common; an independent exhibition model seemed to be the inevitable choice. The search for the possibilities for such an exhibition
model has not ended during the last four years. Only my initial idea to number the shows never changed, hence the first, second, third, fourth show added to the exhibition title.
