When Arter opened on 8 May 2010 with the exhibition entitled Starter which showed works from the Vehbi Koç Foundation Contemporary Art Collection, the "start" to which the title of the exhibition pointed implied the beginning of a route that will bifurcate in various directions: while evoking the promising developments in recent years regarding the rapidly evolving context of contemporary art in Turkey, it heralded determination for the expansion of a burgeoning but ambitious international contemporary art collection; and furthermore it announced once again the museum project that will be realised in the coming years.

Arter's Second Exhibition, which carried its chronological order in the exhibitions organized here to its title, was in fact the first exhibition at Arter in the sense that it was realised independently from the collection and comprised new productions, and denoted the programme that will be adhered to from that point on. The numerical reference in the title sought to evoke the sequentiality within the programme of artistic events at an art institution as well as an institutional continuity, similar to the perpetuity inherent in the act of counting.

It also ironically referenced the criterion of an art institution's success usually associated with numerical values rather than the content produced and the primary importance of numerical values for institutions.


 


Second Exhibition departed from the lack so far of sufficient institutional and sustainable response to the urgent requirement for support towards artistic production despite the rapid growth of contemporary art in Turkey, and focused on encouraging new productions. In consideration of the processes of restructuring and transformation that Turkey was undergoing in the 2000s, which were also observable in art institutions, the shared context of these new works consisted of the concepts of the institution and institutionalisation in a framework with art at its centre. Second Exhibition proposed to examine the concept of the "institution" from a wider perspective and from within art itself; and through the new productions by the artists, attempted to render visible the tensions and dynamics between the art institution, the artist, the work of art and the viewer from different perspectives.
