The Seventh Istanbul Biennal

Once again the Istanbul Biennial opened at a time of extraordinary difficulty. In 1999 the event only just survived the city’s devastating earthquake, whilst the recent backdrop was an explosive economic crisis and the imminent war in the (uncomfortably) Near East. But, as Kevin Dent reports, from this unpromising background the biennial emerged as a triumph offering the city something to celebrate and enjoy.

Strategies and resources

The UK’s seen a noticeable increase in professional development schemes for artists, encompassing training, mentoring, networking and information services. There is an obvious cross-reference to the government’s endorsement of ‘lifelong learning’ as a principle, encouraged through the offer of individual learning accounts for all. These moves increase opportunities for the kinds of artistic development that incorporates developing and honing skills, accessing facilities and ultimately furthering career strategies. The results are more than just CV embellishment. By providing points of crossover between artists, such schemes contribute to peer support systems and help to address the potential isolation of artists. Here, three individuals involved in artists’ professional development matters describe some of the resources around, and discuss how artists are making the most of them.

Trading places

The rise of independent artist-run spaces across the UK, and a seemingly impenetrable gallery circuit in London, appear poles apart. Gordon Dalton in Edinburgh and Tim Birch in Manchester visit two young, ‘commercially-minded’ spaces that have picked up on this, and are encouraging an art market in exciting and challenging contemporary work outside London.
