MIND THE GAP is a multi-media, multi-platform arts initiative to be held in Istanbul September 13-15, 2011. Headquartered at IMC 5533 art space, MIND THE GAP presents performative and new media work by emerging artists from around the globe addressing gaps and borders of all kinds: geographic and social borders, and technological and spatial gaps. With site-specific performances in public spaces around Istanbul, daily guided boat tours on the Bosphorus that offer a new perspective on orientation and the sea, and a virtual interactive mapping project, MIND THE GAP creates unique and participatory experiences to revision the ways we experience art.

Please join us for a video screening preview on September 12th from 16:00-18:30 and our final screening and closing reception on Thursday, September 15 from 16:00-18:30 at IMC 5533.

Whether you are right here in Istanbul with us or on the other side of the globe, we invite you to participate in our interactive works. From downloadable audio soundscapes, to our Vimeo page featuring all of our video works, to our “Map the Gap” digital photo project, viewers from around the world can actively participate in bridging gaps. As a participant in the “Map the Gap” project, you have the opportunity to explore your own ideas of gaps and have your digital photos displayed on our Tumblr.
