- What’s On
The gallery founded by the collector Moiz Zilberman in 2008 was originally two separate galleries – Galeri Zilberman and CDA Projects – located on two floors of the Mısır Apartments in Galatasaray, a handsome Art Nouveau block featured in Solvi dos Santos and Berrin Torolsan’s At Home in Turkey. In late 2013, a decision was made to consolidate both galleries under the banner of Galeri Zilberman. In 2016 Zilberman Gallery Berlin opened in Berlin’s Charlottenburg neighbourhood.
Aiming to promote contemporary Turkish artists internationally and to introduce international artists to the local art scene, Zilberman stages 10–12 solo and group exhibitions per year.
The gallery represents established artists such as Ahmet Elhan, Azade Köker, veteran artist and critic Ipek Duben and Şükran Moral, a seminal figure in performance art. The gallery also works with younger artists such as Aslı Torcu, Fırat Neziroğlu, Eşref Yıldırım, Seçil Erel and Gülin Hayat Topdemir.
Committed to educating collectors and the public on contemporary art, the gallery actively organises regular artist talks, lectures, book presentations and roundtable discussions. More information on these events can be found here. The gallery also supports the Zed Grant, an annual research award of €10,000 open to art practitioners from all over the world. And since 2010, Galeri Zilberman has been running the ‘Young, Fresh, Different’ initiative which provides young artists with financial assistance, as well as the the opportunity to exhibit at the gallery.
