Contemporary Istanbul will take place between 20-23 September 2018 at Istanbul Congress Center (ICC) and Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC). The 13th edition of the fair will include artworks from both established and emerging galleries, bringing a regional and international focus to the dynamic contemporary art scene in Istanbul.
Notable for its unique position both geographically and culturally, Contemporary Istanbul prides itself on bringing together galleries, artists and collectors from Turkey, the Caucasus, the Black Sea, Russia and the Middle East, as well as from Europe, America and Asia.
Istanbul has been home to different civilizations and cultures over the ages and has preserved its cosmopolitan and metropolitan structure that has been home to people of different faiths, languages and ethnicities. As the hope chest of civilizations, İstanbul is the capital of the world, in a sense; it is a city that connects Asia and Europe. As one of the most energetic cities in the world Istanbul continually gets to be an attraction center, along with becoming one of the biggest centers for contemporary art.
