10 international artists were invited to Istanbul to collaborate with local artisans in the “International Artist Residency Program” launched by Istanbul Modern with the support of the Istanbul Development Agency (ISTKA). Their productions will be on display at the museum in February 2020.
In preparation for the exhibition, Istanbul Modern is organizing a program of films about various crafts. The program’s first guest is Finnish artist Katariina Lillqvist whose films have previously been screened at Istanbul Modern as part of the exhibition “In Praise of Shadows” (2009). Lillqvist creates films and animations using handmade puppets and is currently in Turkey to examine the shadow theater and puppet-making traditions of Greece and Turkey. As part of the program, the artist will screen two of her films and present a talk on her research.
The event is free of charge and will be held in English. Simultaneous translation will be provided. Attendance is limited due to seating capacity.
