Video fair coming to Istanbul
Turkish edition could be a forerunner to other locations for Moving Image
Moving Image, the art fair dedicated to video art and experimental film, will launch an edition in Istanbul this autumn. It is scheduled to take place in the Kuleli Building of the Haliç Congress Center alongside the second edition of contemporary art fair ArtInternational (25-28 September).
The Istanbul event is the first in a series of possible new locations for the fair including Hong Kong, São Paolo, Berlin and Los Angeles, says its co-founder, the gallerist Edward Winkleman. He adds that the pace of growth largely depends on the success of this new Turkish edition.
Moving Image was founded in 2011 and has annual editions in New York and London. The fair was designed to allow for maximum flexibility for dealers, but at a low cost (a single-monitor presentation costs $3,000, while larger projects cost $5,500). Gallerists on tight travel budgets can opt to hand over all aspects of installation to the fair organisers, which makes Moving Image an easy and affordable way for dealers to explore new markets, Winkleman says.
Moving Image NY, the Contemporary Video Art Fair Moving Image NY, the contemporary video art fair, will take place March 6-9, 2014. Located in the Waterfront Tunnel in Chelsea, the fair will feature a selection of international commercial galleries and non-profit institutions presenting single-channel videos, single-channel projections, video sculptures, and other larger video installations.
