Follow the rainbow
The Istanbul Modern is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and they’re trotting out all the colours of the rainbow to commemorate it. They’ve installed a massive 7.5-metre by 15-metre neon display, created by Turkish-Armenian conceptual artist Sarkis, on the outside of the building. It’s meant to represent “endless rhythm, excitement and joys of life” and is up for all for 2014. If you can get there by May 8, you’ll also have the chance to visit Neighbours, an exhibit which brings together 35 artists from Turkey and neighbouring countries. It explores theme of cultural transmission and social practices which influence the region’s artistry. The emphasis is on visual art, folk culture and spectacle. Rainbow can be seen outside for free, general admission adults $9, kids under 12 free. istanbulmodern.org/en.
