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.
