“As Istanbul is gearing up for the coming month of September marked by vibrant days of contemporary art, CI will take a steering position in this period. At the beginning of 2019, Anissa Touati was assigned as the artistic director of CI, leading the path for the fair to ground its place in the rapidly changing art world and allowing it to distinguish itself in the new age. Contemporary Istanbul has a strong impact on both Turkey and the region, and it will continue gathering momentum by continuously renewing its objectives. In addition to the inner workings of the fair, we are very much committed to the promotion of Istanbul and Turkey. Beginning in September and continuing during the next three years, there will be significant improvements to the artistic and cultural infrastructure of the city and CI sees as part of its above-mentioned mission, to promote these positive initiatives worldwide,” said Ali Güreli, Chairman, Contemporary Istanbul.
