We are used to the rapid change of the neighborhood of Istanbul. A region that has never been popular before can become the new pupil of the Istanbulites within a few months. The role of art spaces in this transformation is great. Neighborhoods which have number of new galleries, museums and cultural enters will become center of interest in the coming years. Here are the new favorite addresses of art lovers…
Take Historical note: Turkey’s largest contemporary art museum scheduled to open in Dolapdere in autumn 2018. More than 1000 works will be exhibited in Koç Foundation’s highly anticipated museum. You have two reasons to go to Dolapdere by then. It is very enjoyable to visit the exhibit in the second gallery where Dirimart has a flexible architecture. The Gaia Gallery, which has been moved from the historic Alhambra Han to Dolapdere, is waiting for art lovers with its new four-story space.
Art pass away into the plazas, the reasons for spending time in Maslak increased. Take a look at the event calendar of Uniq Istanbul, which has a large share in the rise of the region. If you are interested in contemporary art, you can see the sculptures and land art projects displayed on the terrace of Elgiz Museum, and discover the young artists at Carbon Gallery. Massk Stage, which opened last year, is a center for new theater and performing arts.
In Balat, known for its multi-cultural structure, different artistic understandings fuse. Gallery Eksen Art and Artist House is a place where artists from outside Istanbul can both stop over and exhibit their works. In Plato Art, which supports young talents and new presentation possibilities, you can see examples of contemporary art. the Pill is the another interesting contemporary art galleries of locality which was transformed from an old generator factory.
We love visiting the streets of Yeldeilgirmeni, which turned into an open air museum with Mural Istanbul festival. Arthere Istanbul is one of the places that we have seen. This is a gallery, a workshop and a café that hosts artists from different countries. The address for concerts and film days is Windmill Art, located in the old French church.
