Contemporary Istanbul returns for its 13th anniversary and will be held this September 20 – 23 at Istanbul Congress Center (ICC) and Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC). The fair will showcase over 80 galleries from 21 different countries. The fair has broadened its reach to more than 30 new galleries this year, thanks to a gallery support system launched in 2017 to encourage the participation of international galleries at the fair.

As chairman of Contemporary Istanbul Ali Güreli stated; “Contemporary Istanbul continues to shine a spotlight on Istanbul as a cultural hub with a growing contemporary arts scene. CI has played an integral role in developing a strong market of local collectors, offering a platform to present contemporary art from across the region and globally to both local and international audiences.”

The new galleries participating this year include Almine Rech, Mohsen Gallery, The Hole, Ethan Cole and Galerie Jerome Poggi.
