Abramovic's Istanbul Project
Time Out says
What is it?: For some time Sabancı University Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM) and Marina Abramović Institute (MAI) were seeking practicing artists of Turkish origin or artists currently based in Turkey working in all forms of performance to create new long-durational performances for an exhibition in February 2020 that will last for 3 months at SSM in Istanbul. The deadline for submissions ended by September 22, 2019, and preparations for the exhibition have begun aiming to start in February 2020.
Why go?: The Sakıp Sabancı Museum, which previously hosted important artists such as Ai Weiwei and Anish Kapoor, will exhibit in collaboration with Marina Abramović Institute (MAI) in February 2020 to last for 3 months until April. Sakıp Sabancı Museum is one of the major museums that one should visit in Istanbul due to several reasons including its historic building and furniture, permanent collections, temporary exhibitions, concert venue, restaurant and its wondrous location by the Bosphorus.
