Art Pie International

print this article

On May 10th 2008 non-commercial art fair Kunstvlaai/Art Pie 7 was held on the grounds of the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam. This fair is unique in that it offers artist initiatives a platform on which they can network, show their best exhibition to other initiatives and the wider public. From the 70 artist initiatives that presented themselves at the Kunstvlaai/Art Pie, nine came from Turkey. Orgacom organized the fundraising, found accomodation and organized visits to and network with Amsterdam artist-resicencies and Dutch initiatives.

Artist initiatives are art spaces that are non-commercial, experimental, alternative and/or often function as the first possibilities for young and starting artists to show their work, learn how to make an exhibition and connect to the wider art scene. These places are working on a low or non-existing budget and they need to be supported because they are very important as incubators and critical voices in todays art worlds.

Kunstvlaai/Art Pie was keen to invite artist initiatives from Turkey this year, as they recently adapted a new strategy to go international. The plan is to organize an Art Pie in Istanbul in 2010.

The Turkish artist initiatives present were:
