“Waves” exhibition opened on Thursday evening, January the 15th at BLOK art space and its conjoining unoccupied building under construction at Çukurcuma, Istanbul.

The exhibition, in which the viewer is invited to explore the ways in which even the minutest phenomenon can affect another and lead to transformations drew a big crowd of new media culture and art enthusiasts.

The visitors had the chance to get acquainted with Turkey’s most prominent new media artists at the exhibition’s opening night, as they interacted with the experimental works structured through employing different forms of waves by Alp Çoksoyluer, Alper Derinboğaz, Refik Anadol, Buşra Tunç, Ayşe Gül Süter, Candaş Şişman, Deniz Kader, Erdal İnci, Korhan Erel, Osman Koç, and Ozan Türkkan.

Providing the Turkish art world with an experimental and experience-focused space at an unoccupied building under construction, the exhibition displays various interactive light, sound, and space installations, performances, and video projects.

Two years in the making, “Waves” curator Ebru Yetişkin depicts the way in which contemporary social change is investigated at this exhibition with researchers, engineers, designers, makers, and artists that have partaken in the most prestigious events on their subjects around the world.

The exhibition will also be housing talks and live performances every Saturday at 5:30 PM where social phenomenon and the contemporary state of art will be discussed in the contexts of physics, architecture, politics, philosophy, and sociology.

Alongside a special tour of the exhibition for children “Micro Waves” on Saturday, January the 24th between 2 and 4 PM, the event schedule includes brief exhibition talks “Short Waves” every Wednesday between 7 and 9 PM. The exhibition can be seen until February 28th; all events are free.
