On the occasion of the Istanbul Art Biennial, Mama Shelter invited LA and Paris based curators Lauren Mackler, Martha Kirszenbaum and Myriam Ben Salah to organize two nights of screenings, audio, visual and stage performances. Oslo-based performance artist & singer Nils Bech and Los Angeles-based DJ & producer NAR will be pushing the boundaries with their unconventional audio, visual & stage performances at Mama's rooftop.
The renowned Norwegian singer and performance artist Nils Bech will be doing an intimate acapella performance. Bech has performed at the 54th Veneice Biennale, Institute of Contemporary Art London, Sculpture Center and Performa 09 and 11 in New York, among many others.
NAR is a music producer and DJ from Los Angeles, with a musical background that integrates both middle eastern soundscapes and club undertones. The artist's unconventional aesthetic encompasses a unique perspective in both sound and visuals that pushes boundaries with projects like burqa and allBOYallGIRL.
In three of Mama Shelter's Philippe Starck designed rooms, L.A and Paris-based curators, Lauren Mackler, Martha Kirszenbaum and Myriam Ben Salah will exhibit a program of screenings between 7-9 pm on September 3 and 4, 2015.
