Drawn from the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection in Istanbul, Turkey, an exhibition of recent media arts acquisitions will be on view in a temporary space at 208 Bowery in New York City, October 12–28, 2017. Overture: Selections from the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection features time-based work by an international roster of influential artists: Jim Campbell, Daniel Canogar, U-Ram Choe, John Gerrard, Claudia Hart, Ali Kazma, Michal Rovner, and Allard van Hoorn.

Organized by Kathleen Forde, Borusan Contemporary’s Artistic Director at Large, the works on view explore a range of perspectives including an attention to human perception and memory and shifting concepts of identity and environment. “The selection also functions as a vibrant embodiment of the geographic reach, aesthetic range, and diversity of practices represented in Borusan Contemporary’s recent collecting activities in media arts. The works span digitized landscapes and recently commissioned videos to simulations, kinetic work, and beyond,” said Forde.

Overture is on view October 12–28, 2017. Gallery hours are Wednesday–Sunday 12:00pm–6:00 pm; Monday‒Tuesday by appointment only; at 208 Bowery, in the Lower Eastside gallery district. Overture will be accompanied by public programs. With the “Moving Image” series developed for and presented at the University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor this year, Overture enables the Art Collection to be enjoyed by audiences in the U.S.
