Last Nine Days for Art Lovers to See 12th Istanbul Biennial

As the curtains prepare to fall on the 12th Istanbul Biennial, the event’s organizer, the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV), has announced that the event, which is set to draw to a close on Nov. 13, will be open for viewing throughout the duration of Eid al-Adha (Feast of the Sacrifice), the Anatolia news agency reported on Thursday.

The organization also revealed that Biennial ticket prices for pensioners, teachers, students and members of the International Association of Plastic Arts are now available at the reduced price of TL 8.

A vast collection composed of five group exhibitions, over 50 solo presentations and encompassing a dizzying total of more than 500 works, the 12th Istanbul Biennial, which opened on Sept. 14, is inspired by the works of Felix Gonzalez-Torres, the Cuban American artist who died of AIDS in 1996 at the age of 42.
