We are delighted to announce that The Civilization of Llhuros has been selected for exhibit at the 2019 Istanbul Biennial 2019 which runs from September 14 − November 10.
Titled “The Seventh Continent” by curator Nicholas Bourriaud, the biennial will feature 57 participating artists from 26 countries on view across three locations in the city: the Istanbul Shipyards, the Pera Museum, and Büyükada Island.
The Civilization of Llhuros will be installed in the Pera Museum, one the three biennial venues. The Pera Museum is one of the world’s most distinguished cultural centers in one of the liveliest quarters of the city.
Created by Norman Daly (1912-2008) in the early 1970’s, and considered to be the first multimedia exhibition in the genre of archaeological fiction, this marks the first exhibit of this scale since 1974 when the full installation was exhibited in Cologne. In 2017, a selection of objects were shown part of the Plurivers show at La Panacée – Le Centre d’art contemporain in Montpellier, France.
