An exhibition on time

The seventh in a cycle of exhibitions called İstiklâl Adventure, curated by René Block, features artist Cengiz Çekil, who invites art lovers to consider 'time' in his exhibition, “What Time Is It?” Çekil, who has treated both universal themes and Turkey's recent history since the 1970's, never fails to produce striking examples of topical art.

In this new show, Çekil draws visitors into an installation consisting of rich visual as well as audio components, leaving it up to them to answer the questions raised. A brief statement he wrote concerning the exhibition concludes: “If art is the breaking off of a 'moment' from time's flow and putting it in parentheses, then what time is it?”
Through 31 January.
