How to exhibit a collection growing with constant new acquisitions and works commissioned by artists and pushing its boundaries further? How to establish a dialog between the temporary exhibitions and the existing works in a museum collection which aims to foster New Media Art and present it to the public? The selections titled “Segment” call upon works from the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection that serve as means of offering an alternative model for these questions. What makes this exhibition model different from those of traditional museums is that they present opportunities for homogenous readings on different floors of Borusan Contemporary? Held semi-annually, the “Segment” exhibitions offer the viewer an opportunity to establish links between the selections from the collection and other works. In this manner, the “Segment” exhibitions present different vertical and horizontal relationships within Borusan Contemporary in a way to observe and reflect the characteristics of Perili Köşk’s architecture.
The Borusan Contemporary Art Collection has a homogenous structure, mostly comprising works produced after 1990s with different techniques. The collection features works of eminent figures of international contemporary art such as Donald Judd, François Morellet, Sol LeWitt, Thomas Ruff, Keith Sonnier, Liam Gillick, Tatsuo Miyajima and Roman Signer as well as works of contemporary Turkish artists from different generations such as Kutluğ Ataman, Sarkis, Gülsün Karamustafa, Bülent Evren, Burak Arıkan, Cevdet Erek, Lale Delibaş, Ergin Çavuşoğlu and Bengü Karaduman. The photography section represented by seminal artists like Robert Mapplethorpe, Sebastião Salgado, Ahmet Ertuğ, Ola Kolehmainen, Edward Burtynsky, Lynn Davis and Thomas Ruff offer the viewer a different perspective.
Perili Köşk, the home of Borusan Contemporary, which came into operation as Borusan Holding’s headquarters as of February 2007, is one of the most interesting and exquisite civic architecture along the Bosphorus. The building is used as an office during the week and as a museum open to public in the weekend and stands as a striking example of living with contemporary art.
