Akakçe opens a view into “a world of seemingly endless possibility… where it seems one may become anything simply by believing in its possibility.”
-Alex Farquharson

Born 1970, in Ankara, Turkey, and educated at Bilkent University, Ankara, and the Art Institute of Chicago, Akakçe has had solo exhibitions in numerous venues around the world, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Centro Nazionale per le Arti Contemporanee, Rome; Platform Contemporary Art Center, Istanbul; P.S. 1 Contemporary Arts Center, New York; The Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Connecticut; and Künst-Werke Berlin e.V. KW Institute for Contemporary Art. The artist is represented by The Approach, London. In 2000, Akakçe participated in Creative Time’s project, DNAid, with a billboard featuring a still from his video The Measure of All Things. Reading “Are We Ready?” the still depicted a double helix spiraling from the earth to the city skyline, representing his view of the future of technology.
