- What’s On
The ArtInternational Istanbul is a new contemporary art fair which promises to give access to exciting new art from Turkey, Europe, the Middle East and beyond.
The fair will bring together leading international and local galleries, including artSümer, Galerist, Egeran Galley, Galeri Mana, Pi Artworks, Rampa and x-Ist from Istanbul, and many others from a plethora of major European, American and Middle Eastern cities. The Fair’s website provides a full list of exhibitors.
Dyala Nusseibeh, the director of ArtInternational Istanbul, says the need for the Fair is three-fold. First is the demand from international galleries to form stronger ties with Turkey’s burgeoning arts community. Second is the large number of private patrons in the city who wish to expand their international circles. And finally is the increasing collector base with more and more young Turkish professionals with disposable incomes wishing to enter the art market.
