Turkey Picks Sarkis for Venice Biennale

Paris-based artist Sarkis has been chosen to represent Turkey at the 2015 Venice Biennale, according to Artforum. The exhibition will be shown at a brand new Arsenale location that was recently secured for the next 20 years by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts. Defne Ayas, director and curator at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, has been tapped to curate Sarkis, whose work has been shown in the past at museums like the Centre Pompidou, the Guggenheim, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf.
