Grand Opening of new club in Istanbul
In a mail from The Triangle Projects New York and Istanbul friend Stephen Riolo
"I'll be in Istanbul tomorrow helping out with the opening of machine club (this saturday the 13'th @ balo sok.31/b beyoglu.) I'm also coming to feel out the possibilities of facilitating Queeruption '09 in istanbul. Soti and I have just been in NYC for my mom's 50'th b-day. Also had the chance to visit out a ton galleries, museums and project spaces. I'd love to see what's been going on in the istanbul arts scene post-biennale.
I'm crashing on a friend floor in cihanger, but it sounds pretty packed with club folks. If any one has an empty bedroom or sofa (and a shower) please hook me up. Soti's space in Athens is being renovated as we're developing it into a live-in arts salon space, with a cultural event series (films, talks, performances.) It all begins in the new year near Omonia!"
