Akbank Sanat is focusing on the purest state of the digital arts in a new exhibition titled “Monochrome.”
Works from world-renowned digital artists such as Ryoichi Kurokawa, LIA, Memo Akten, Zimoun, Quayola and Simon Heijdens have been installed next to riveting digital artists from Istanbul such as Selçuk Artut, Ouchhh and Refik Anadol with Ceren Arkman and Irmak Arkman acting as curators.
The curators describe “Monochrome” as an exhibition that primarily aims to satisfy visitors by creating an alternate space, world and nature. The black-and-white aesthetics of the works were created by using the shades of a sole color in a move that plays to humans' predilection for geometry.
The works have “free beauty” that is far removed from all concerns about imitation and signification of instructiveness as described by German philosopher Immanuel Kant.
The exhibition will continue through Feb. 13, 2016.
