Istanbul Biennial 2011 a resounding success

The 11th Istanbul biennial in 2009 was visited by 101,000 people. According to figures, this year’s biennial was the most successful yet. Curated by Adriano Pedrosa and Jens Hoffmann, the giant art event showed how similar human experiences constituted some of the most fundamental aspects of life. Central to the biennial was Cuban-American contemporary artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres’ works “Untitled” (Abstraction), “Untitled” (Ross), “Untitled” (Passport), “Untitled” (History), “Untitled” (Death With a Gun), which lent their names to five halls in the biennial venues Antrepo 3 and Antrepo 5 as each exhibition hall displayed “related” artworks.
