Contemporary Art Exhibition
Contemporary Istanbul is the leading annual art fair in Turkey, situated at the meeting point of Europe and Asia in one of the great cities of the world. Contemporary Istanbul takes place each September and offers a platform for the city’s thriving art scene, growing art market and collector base, as well as an access point to the best contemporary art from the wider region.
Notable for its unique position both geographically and culturally, Contemporary Istanbul prides itself on bringing together galleries, artists and collectors from Turkey, the Caucasus, the Black Sea, Russia and the Middle East, as well as from Europe, America and Asia.
The previous edition of Contemporary Istanbul (CI) had strong support from an international art audience of philanthropists, collectors and the public, strengthening the fair’s vision for a continued collaborative cultural arena in Istanbul. Bringing together 73 galleries from 25 cities across more than 20 countries presenting 1500 artworks, the fair attracted a record number of over 80,000 visitors.
Contemporary Istanbul 2019 will take place between 12 – 15 September 2019, with the VIP Preview on 11 September, bringing together once again leading contemporary art galleries, artists and collectors from Turkey and around the world.
