ALDOUS in ISTANBUL
13 Apr - 10 May 2008
Bringing today’s trends to the contemporary art scene of Istanbul, Artane caught the spotlight last year with the British artist Aldous Eveleigh’s unusual exhibition. The exhibition, which was themed New York , seemed to be about September 11th. However, the striking part was that these works of art were created before the tragedy itself.
Aldous Eveleigh who showed the power of art and imagination to the extent that can be called premonition , is coming back to Artane in April with a new exhibition. This time, he is offering a theme that will interest the people of Istanbul : Istanbul itself as seen through the eyes of a western artist. This exhibition is a total art work consisting of film, paintings, drawings, prints , sound art and installation. It is a preview of the artist’s major exhibition for 2010 when Istanbul is European city of culture.
Aldous Eveleigh lives and works in London, where he studied painting at the Royal College of Art. He has exhibited widely in Europe, Australia and America.
