- What’s On
Galeri NON was founded by Derya Demir in September 2009 with the ethos of supporting artists who embrace non-disciplinary art practices.
Located in the backstreets behind the Galatasaray High School in Tophane, the gallery frequently hosts brave and dynamic exhibitions and is a regular on the art-fair circuit. NON-Stage is an additional initiative which culminates in the staging of the occasional artist performance or lecture.
The gallery has a growing roster of exciting Turkish and European artists and artist groups. There’s Aslı Çavuşoğlu, who won the 2012 Full Art First Prize, Turkey’s first ever national contemporary art prize; the London-based artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan; the Goldsmiths graduates Karen Mirza and Brad Butler; the Swedish artist Annika Eriksson, who presented a very timely video work at the 13th Istanbul Biennial; the artist duo Goldin+Senneby; and the Swiss artist Uriel Orlow.
An outdoor area with couches allows provides a welcome place to relax after enjoying the exhibition du jour.
The gallery closed in late 2014.
