>Professional preview on September 18 ­ 19, 2003
>The 8th International Istanbul Biennial organized by the Istanbul 
>Foundation for Culture and Arts will take place between 20 September ­ 16 
>November 2003. The 8th Istanbul Biennial is curated by Dan Cameron under 
>the title “Poetic Justice” and will host approximately 85 artists from 42 
>The conceptual framework of the 8th International Istanbul Biennial will 
>be formed around the concept of Poetic Justice. In proposing this phrase 
>as the basis for a sustained investigation into the latest developments in 
>contemporary art, the exhibition seeks to articulate an area of creative 
>activity in which the seemingly opposing concepts of poetry and justice 
>are brought into play together. The 8th Istanbul Biennial will raise the 
>questions of “What is justice? Why has justice emerged today as a question 
>of pressing concern? Is justice possible in today’s globalized world?”, 
>and with the title Poetic Justice which takes its cue from the literary 
>device of the same name will reveal part of its underlying premise as an 
>attempt to reconsider the wide stylistic breach between two different 
>forms of art-making: one which takes as its subject the world and its 
>affairs, a second one that address concerns which are more identified with 
>the viewer’s inner life. One of the most important objectives of the 8th 
>International Istanbul Biennial will be to create a lively and engaging 
>public forum for responding to the ideas of artists whose work embodies a 
>form of commitment to the goal of making art a vehicle for reconciling 
>these two facets of life.
