CI DIALOGUES 2017

 

This year’s CI Dialogues, the fair’s discussion and talk series, will mainly focus on the topic of “Movement” from the artistic perspective. It will discuss the topic in relation to different disciplines that make the core of human daily life, such as technology, architecture, space, and food. Inviting key personalities of related topics, the program will bring together academicians, architects, artists, professionals to review the state of contemporary art along with its relation with other creative industries and daily life.

 

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 AND FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 15

 

ART & TECHNOLOGY I: HUMAN AESTHETICS IN FUTURE TECHNOLOGIES

This panel will examine the ways human aesthetics, as we acknowledge it today, experiences a shift with the development of robotics and artificial intelligence. Aesthetics has always been linked with the human's ability to feel emotions. Thus, could we consider aesthetics as something that is only related to the “human space”? If not, how do we frame it in a post-space, hyper-technologized society? Within the context of contemporary art, we will discuss the possibility of aesthetics outside of an object-oriented discourse. We will also question the existence of an immaterialized information aesthetics, which presents a new format parallel to reality. Hence, we will be discussing if it is possible to consider technology as unlinked from the organic. Or conversely we will suggest the "non-organic world" is indeed "organic", and that "aesthetics" is actually something that simply grow from its same, organic, roots?

ART & TECHNOLOGY II: NEW SPACE OF CREATIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND ITS IMPACT ON HUMAN LIVES

In the recent past, human beings could not even imagine concepts such as virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence, yet many more have become routine of human life. Creative technologies are shaping today and the future and inevitably they effect persons daily lives and their way of expressing themselves.  At CI Dialogues’ next panel, we will discuss today’s and tomorrow's routines in wider perspective.

ART & COLLECTING AT HT BLOOMBERG: CREATING AN ARTISTIC MEMORY: ART COLLECTION

As a storyteller of the modern world, art is writing a history of the past and the future in the hands of connoisseurs. Art, as a self-expression form from past to present, comes alive in wide range of disciplines from architecture to literature. Thus, we will be looking for some answers in CI Dialogues to the questions like what is art, how can it be collected and how do we need to look at an art piece.

ART & FOOD: THE INTERCONNECTED ART OF TASTE

Mankind has been seeking the real taste for ages. Once they harvested the one has found, finally settled down. This radical transition has created today’s moving cities, moving fusion cuisines and the chefs who transform the grace of earth into art. In the first panel of the day, we will discuss the developing culinary culture and tastes that mankind has been looking for since its existence.

ART & ARCHITECTURE: MOVEMENT IN SPACE

Space finds a place for itself as a subject in art, especially in the recent years. In terms of architecture, spaces and masses as its opposite, shape the city and architectural spaces. This panel will focus on the new architectural space and different eras of design, after our perception is shifted by time known as the fourth dimension. The human movement, as part of artistic creation in the new millennium will also be discussed in relation to the city, garden and community.
