Turnacıbaşı Caddesi No. 21, Galatasaray

Tues–Sat: 11.00 –18.00

Opposite the Galatasaray Hamamı

Located in Galatasaray on a historic street running parallel to the Galatasaray High School, the tiny Gama Gallery was founded in 2009 by Şule Claire Altıntaş. The gallery aims to bring together various forms of artistic expression and this culminates in frequent (usually back-to-back), shorter exhibitions spanning the disciplines of painting, multimedia art, conceptual art and performance.

Gama’s roster is a mixture of established and emerging European (mostly of French origin) artists and a handful of Turkish artists. Perhaps the strong concentration of French artists owes itself to Altıntaş’ own French background.

The gallery represents seasoned painter Caroline de Boissieu; Egyptian-born artist Alyâa Kamel; experimental artist and designer Cyril Le Van who makes plastic art inspired by pop culture; Eric Peyret, whose urban scape paintings are greatly influenced by his interest in architecture; and German artist Jean-Luc Cornec known for his ‘Rotary Phone Sheep’. From the Turkish pool, there’s painter Gülderen Depas and photographer Mustafa Dişli.
