Ali Kazma will represent Turkey @ 2013 Venice Biennale
Emre Baykal, director of Arter in Istanbul, elected curator of the Turkish pavillion for the next Venice Biennale in June 2013, has announced today that Ali Kazma will be the artist to represent Turkey, with a completely new project.
Emre Baykal worked for the Istanbul Biennial as Assistant Director from 1995 to 2000, and as Director from 2000 to 2005 and has been presenting major group and solo shows of both Turkish and international artists, with a particular focus given to installations and videos.
Ali Kazma, who was granted (together with Rosa Barba), the Nam June Paik Award in 2010, is surely working already…
We are looking forward meeting you all in Venice next June !
