Istanbul Modern brings Artists’ Film International to Istanbul, a program dedicated to moving image by featuring videos, animations and films of visual artists from around the world. Artists’ Film International’s 2014-2015 is on view between January 20 and March 12, 2015 with a pop-up exhibition that features two video installations from Turkey along with recent works by artists from 15 countries in thematic selections.

The two films from Turkey are; Burak Delier’s “Crisis and Control” and Vahap Avşar’s “Road to Arguvan”.

The exhibition’s only video room, namely “Blackbox” hosts every week throughout the exhibition a different video work as installation. Talks and presentations about video art and artists’ films will be held within the scope of the exhibition. The first exhibition event is a conversation on video art in Serbia between artist Milica Tomić and curator Zorana Đaković on January 28.

Having worked with Burak Delier in 2014 within the scope of the program, Istanbul Modern invited Vahap Avşar for 2015. Avşar’s video will feature in the exhibitions and screenings organized by the program partners throughout the year.

Artists: Yuri Ancarani, Vahap Avşar, Lee Kai Chung, Burak Delier, Dalila Ennadre, Provmyza Group, Mattias Harenstam, Oded Hirsch, Rebecca Ann Hobbs, Tran Luong, Jorge Macchi, Nicole Miller, Karen Mirza & Brad Butler, Uudam Tran Nguyen, Masooda Noora, Pallavi Paul, Elisabeth Price, Tejal Shah, Anatoly Shuravlev, Angela Su, Milica Tomic, Diego Tonus, Amir Yatziv, Tanya Busse & Emilija Škarnulytė
