The Built Environment - Lower East Side in Istanbul (2014)
Mixer is delighted to present The Built Environment, Lower East Side in Istanbul, the first show of the new season. This group-exhibition features nine international artists, none of whom have previously shown in Istanbul. These artists work in photo-based practices, painting, collage, printed matter, sculpture, video, and some are producing site-specific works, directly engaging with the built environment of Istanbul. The artworks in The Built Environment, Lower East Side in Istanbul will be displayed in Mixer’s exhibition space in Tophane between 19 September – 02 November, combine references to constructed space with a focus on urban topography, specifically a sense of how the order and structure of our environment can produce a sense of disorientation, confrontation, or sometimes anxiety.
