Considered one of the leading international art fairs in Turkey, Contemporary Istanbul brings both regional and international focus to the dynamic art scene in Turkey’s vibrant metropolis every year.

This year’s event has been pulled forward from its usual November dates to coincide with its older sibling Istanbul Biennial. Contemporary Istanbul will take place between 14-17 September 2017 at Istanbul Congress Center (ICC) and Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC). The 12th 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.

In addition to the list of over a hundred international exhibitors, Contemporary Istanbul has a program of events around the fair including Plugin, CI Dialogues, Collectors’ Stories, and CI Design.

Solo-Shows will feature Agnieszka Brzeżańska (Kasia Michalski), Ahmet Ertuğ (Galeria Senda), Ahmet Sarı (CEP Gallery), Adrian Hermanides (xavierlaboulbenne), İlhan Koman (Art Collection), Mustafa Pancar (Galeri/Miz), and Shahriar Ahmadi (Dastan’s Basement)
