The 16th Istanbul Biennial will take place between 14 September and 10 November 2019. It will be curated by French curator, art scholar and writer Nicolas Bourriaud.

About

Bourriaud, one of the co-founders of Palais de Tokyo, Paris and current director of the Montpellier Contemporain, stated, “I am very honoured to be able to contribute to the history of Istanbul Biennial, which has always been a place of strong curatorial statements since its creation in 1987. Also, as a crossing point, the city of Istanbul takes a specific signification today, in a global political era marked by binary thought. I will try to build an exhibition that measures up to our historical situation.”

Istanbul Biennial’s Advisory Board commented on Bourriaud, “Nicolas Bourriaud’s research embracing the idea of multiverse is vital for the thoughtful minds of today. We strongly believe that Nicolas will develop an intriguing exhibition considering his esteemed curatorial and theoretical practice, his in-depth academic studies as well has his long term collaborations with artists and active engagement with new generations. 16th Istanbul Biennial, under the curatorship of Nicolas Bourriaud, will celebrate and embrace the possibilities of transdiciplinary collaboration through the exhibition and its public programmes which will bring together artists and specialists living and producing in different parts of the globe.”

The Istanbul Biennial Advisory Board members include Iwona Blazwick, Ayşe Erek, İnci Eviner, Yuko Hasegawa and Agustín Pérez Rubio.
