On Turgut Uyar’s path: With They Are Uttered and Left Unfinished All the Loves in the World II

Curated by Necmi SönmezThey Are Uttered and Left Unfinished All the Loves in the World II is an expanded continuation of the exhibition including a selection of works from the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection last season, inspired by Turgut Uyar. 
Bringing together important names of contemporary art from across the world, this exhibition aims to produce new interpretations through installations that strengthen the viewer’s esthetic senses, referring to today’s economic and social problems while forming a special parenthesis for visual arts using the images in Turgut Uyar’s poetry. Ranging from video-sculpture to photography, neon installations to interactive digital works, the exhibition foregrounds “experimental” approaches and the artists’ predictions, interpreted through digital media, visualizes what Uyar aptly described as the “troubles of today.” 

Important information for visitors: Borusan Contemporary is only open on the weekends, 10am-7pm. There are guided tours available for free at the museum, 11am-6pm, every hour on the hour. Art enthusiasts who would like to visit Borusan Contemporary on September 14-15 can take the boats available from Karaköy to the museum, organized specially for the first week of the 16th Istanbul Biennial.
