Historic Moda hosts contemporary art
ISTANBULModa, one of Istanbul’s most prominent neighborhoods, is hosting contemporary art on its streets with Red Bull Art Around.
The curator of the project, Amira Akbıyıkoğlu, aims to integrate works of art into people’s lives, without stealing the stage from the neighborhood.
“Encounters in the Neighborhood” intends to connect Istanbulites with art on the street and to make works visible through cracks, open doors and forgotten spaces just as in virtual world.
The first undertaking in the project took place in Karaköy last year, while Moda was chosen this year due to its history as well as its popularity.
The project, which will continue until May 17, can be seen in different spots in Moda, including Brunelle pool, Brunelle wall, All Saints Church, Dün, Moda Park, Çırak Barbershop columns, Kısmet Flower Shop, Mühürdar Karakolu Street, Başar Street, Bant Mag Venue and Wunder.
