Event Details

The 15th edition of Contemporary Istanbul, with the main sponsorship of Akbank, will be the first such event that will launch the revival of the art scene of Istanbul, with a VIP preview on June 1-2 and open to all from June 3 to 6, 2021. Contemporary Istanbul will come together with art lovers in the Lütfi Kırdar Rumeli Halls. The fair, which will feature contemporary art galleries in Turkey, will be held in line with the COVID-19 measures with all precautions taken to this effect.

Following a protracted pause, the 15th Contemporary Istanbul art fair, under the main sponsorship of Akbank, is coming together with art lovers at the Istanbul Lütfi Kırdar Convention and Exhibition Center Rumeli Halls. Participants are contemporary art galleries from Turkey. This edition of Contemporary Istanbul, which cooperates with art institutions and institutes to ensure a sustainable art environment, includes the Contemporary Istanbul Foundation (CIF), Akbank Sanat, Baksı Museum, Borusan Contemporary, Odunpazarı Modern Art Foundation (OMM) and Otonom Art Events.

Supporting the development of contemporary art in Turkey and including international projects in different disciplines of art, Akbank Sanat will take its place at the fair with an interesting exhibition this year, just like in every other edition.

Each gallery will invite selected artists to the fair, and bring collectors and artists together on the “Artist Day” scheduled for June 1, which will go on throughout the day with the participation of artists whose works are exhibited through solo exhibitions.
