İstiklâl Caddesi No. 211, Tünel, Beyoğlu

Tues–Thurs: 11.00–19.00; Fri–Sun: 12.00–20.00

At the Tünel end of İstiklâl Caddesi

The opening of the Koç Foundation’s new space on İstiklâl Caddesi (at the Tünel end) in 2010 was a game changer for art in the city. Dubbed a ‘space for art’, ARTER showcases works from the Koç Foundation’s collection of modern art, as well as specially commissioned works and some of the most powerful and exciting temporary exhibitions in the city. The three-storey space undergoes (often exhaustive) makeovers to specifically suit the exhibition du jour

Standouts have included retrospective shows from Young British Artists such as Marc Quinn (2014) and Mat Collishaw (2013); group show Envy, Enmity, Embarrassment (2013); the first solo show in Turkey of Palestinian artist Mona Hatoum (2012); an exhibition of Flemish artist Berlinde De Bruyckerea’s fleshy sculptures (2012); a multi-disciplinary show from Australian artist Patricia Piccinini (2011); and an exhibition of video artist Kutluğ Ataman’s ‘talking portraits’ (2011). ARTER also served as one of the venues for the 13th Istanbul Biennial in 2013.
