BIENNIAL EVENT / SINOPALE 2017

Share

The 6th edition of Sinopale–International Sinop Biennial under the common title “Transposition” will take place in Sinop, Turkey, from 1th August to 17th September 2017.

Affirming the periphery, Sinopale brings international contemporary art to the city of Sinop by the Black Sea in Northern Turkey. Sinopale is a biennial event – investigating various forms of resistance and adaptation of local movements and initiatives from civil society, ecological activism and nongovernmental politics. The summer of 2017 will align artistic processes of sharing, commonality and difference. The artists will be working in situ. A horizontal collaborative structure will bring the invited artists together with the citizens of Sinop to create spaces for aesthetic, social and political practice.

Sinopale 6 will revolve around the notion of Transposition. Transposition is a word with several meanings, which all signify a shift between values. Playing with the gap in-between, it becomes possible to open room for process and transference, to open a conceptual space as well as a scope for action and imagination. Sinopale 6 furthermore taps into dialogues on the history of material and cultural memory in order to create an associative space full of cross-references.

Sinopale is a young biennial for contemporary art on the periphery, consisting of a multitude of events of different formats. As long-term organizer of Sinopale, the European Cultural Association emphasizes on its sustainable micro-political and emancipatory efforts. The organization works in close co-operation with international curators who are responsible for the selection of the artists and the program. We take a pragmatic and functional collective approach to the exhibition, events and their thematic and discursive direction in order to generate a format of cross-cultural exchange with the local context.
