ISTANBUL TAKES THE LEAD
Contemporary Istanbul returns for its 12th edition.
Istanbul has been enjoying a bustling art scene as of late, in large part thanks to the likes of leading international art fair Contemporary Istanbul. The fair brings Turkish and international galleries, artists and collectors together for its 12th year, with new participating galleries such as Seoul’s Gallery Tableau, London’s Vigo Gallery and Barcelona’s N2 Gallery. Contemporary Istanbul also coincides with the opening of the 15th Istanbul Biennial, with a highly anticipated show by Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei at the Sakip Sabanci Museum.
