Contemporary Istanbul, a must-see for contemporary art lovers

Published on 07-05-2016 Agenda

Within ten years of existence, Contemporary Istanbul has carved out a nice spot on the international artistic scene. And for the 11th edition, it knows how to reinvent itself.

For 11 years, the Contemporary Istanbul art fair has transcribed the effervescent creative spirit or the Turkish art scene and given it an international reputation. Every year in November, art galleries, collectors and professionals gather from around the world and create a buzz by taking over the 17,000 m2 of the Istanbul Congress Centre and Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre.

What is waiting for art lovers? The promise of discovering in the various exhibition areas a selection of sophisticated artworks by upcoming and renowned artists alike.

This arty event has become a major moment in Istanbul, and it makes every effort to renew itself, evidence being the two great novelties of this 11th edition: the Collector's Choice exhibition, a display of around 100 items gathered from the private collections of big Turkish collectors; and a new area dedicated to design.
