Turkey’s leading art fair Contemporary Istanbul presents its 16th edition

We are delighted to have been briefed to support Contemporary Istanbul’s 16th edition in its significant new location: the Tersane Istanbul, from 7–10 October 2021. Launching the city’s autumn art season, Contemporary Istanbul will bring together exhibitors from Istanbul and around the world to highlight the dynamic contemporary art scene that has risen out of Istanbul in recent decades. 

56 national and international galleries and non-profit art organisations such as AB Gallery (Seoul), Bermen Gallery (Johannesburg), Claudia Schmidt (Zurich), C24 (New York), JD MALAT GALLERY (London), Marlborough Gallery (New York), Mohsen Gallery (Tehran), Anna Laudel  (Istanbul / Düsseldorf), Pilevneli (Istanbul) & KÖNIG GALERI (Berlin) and Zilberman (Istanbul / Berlin) will participate to the fair. Galleries participating in Contemporary Istanbul for the first time also include Bavan Gallery, (Tehran), HOTEL MOND FINE ART (Berlin), Iranshahr Art Gallery, (Tehran), Mariana Custodio, (Lisbon), Mironova Gallery, (Kiev) and Szena Gallery (Moscow). The artists on display will be predominantly contemporary living artists with some drawing examples of 20th century art icons such as Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro presented by Galeria Joan Gaspar, (Barcelona). Contemporary Istanbul will also reflect contemporary art practice, themes and trends through its curated exhibitions.
