DESCRIPTION

Within the scope of its 10th year, Istanbul Modern presents “Plurivocality”, an exhibition investigating the interrelations between auditory and visual arts through a selection of contemporary artwork in Turkey.

Exploring the close bond the visual arts have established with sound and music from past to present, “Plurivocality” reveals the special personal and social roles music plays in artistic processes. The exhibition features current works by artists that treat the visual and the auditory not as distinct disciplines, but rather as two fields that work in tandem.  The paintings, sculptures, videos, and installations in the exhibition render sound and music visually as a theme, concept, or difficulty, using different forms of music and sound as metaphors and means of expression. The exhibition also serves as a source for understanding the cultural and sociopolitical role sound and music play in Turkey and how various music trends have influenced visual art practices.

A research area at the entrance of the exhibition hall, “Repertoire” explores the intersections between music and the visual arts in Turkey as well as past collaborations between actors in the two fields. “Repertoire” is an initiative that examines Turkey’s sociocultural history from the late Ottoman era to the 1980s via its reflections in the visual arts and music.
