ID / Identities | Istanbul (Turkey) Openings: November 22 - 23, 2012

ID / Identities, an International Art Festival of Photography, Video Art, Computer Graphics, Installation and Performing Art, will be held in the city of Istanbul. The Koza Visual Culture and Arts Association and the Avantgarde Hotel, the venues of the event, will open their doors on Thursday 22 and Friday 23 of November, until Sunday 23 of December. Ninety-eight artists, from different countries, have been selected to be part of this project.

The selections has been based on the main concept of "Identities" and on all its reflections on cities, bodies, society and cultures, mixing borders between them. Everyday we deal with a multitude of different identities and roles: we face the public life creating and adapting our social identities; our body and aesthetic tastes modify and are modified by our physical and sexual identities;our whole being evolves as well as contemporary cultures and modern cities do. People, environments, societies, progress and all their inputs shape and regenerate our individualities; they shift and overlap with our selves creating a new stimulating world.

After the event, our organization in collaboration with the curators, will select the winning artists of 1 Solo Exhibition in Venice, held in one of our exclusive venues between San Marco Square and the Arsenale or near the Ponte di Rialto on the Canal Grande; 1 year of participation to International Art Festivals organized by International ArtExpo and 1 week of luxury accommodation in an exclusive art residence in Italy.
