- What’s On
Contemporary Istanbul is one of the leading annual art fairs in Turkey. It takes place each September and offers a platform for the city’s thriving art scene, growing art market and collector base as well as providing an access point to the best contemporary art from around the world.
This year the fair will welcome visitors to Tersane Istanbul, a new venue located in the historical Ottoman-era shipyards on the picturesque shores of the Golden Horn. Sixty-six leading galleries and art initiatives from 22 countries will showcase 1,476 artworks by 558 artists.
CI also conducts activities throughout the year to develop contemporary art and culture and increase awareness in the field, promoting them within Turkey as well as offering international events and programmes.
Contemporary Istanbul’s 17th edition is sponsored by Akbank.
