My visit to Contemporary Istanbul last year was satisfying enough. This year they celebrate their 10th year! Contempory will take place 12-15 November at Istanbul Congress Center (ICC) and Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC).
Contemporary has been a key player in the development of contemporary art in Turkey and the surrounding regions. With 49 galleries and 37,000 visitors in 2006 swelling to 108 galleries, 80,000 visitors in 2014, CI both reflects the Istanbul art scene and the increasing interest of international galleries and collectors in the city and further afield. Beside bringing a rich selection of modern art pieces together from all around the world, the art fair also offers digital art works of new media.

What I liked most?
I really enjoyed spending time in front of Ali Elmaci`s work and I liked him as much as I liked his work when I met. He is an amazing man! He has a diffirent way of saying what he thinks with deep colors. Stylish and unique! Do not miss to visit!
