A rising star in the world of art fairs, Contemporary Istanbul ’08 has established itself as one of the most dynamic and promising art events in the region.

Scheduled to run between 16-19 October, this year's edition of Contemporary Istanbul ‘08, will host galleries, art institutions and initiatives from across the globe, as well as a wide range of events, including roundtable discussions, concerts, and performance art.

Istanbul, a teeming hub of cultural activity and a longstanding site of the fusion between Eastern and Western cultures, is both the backdrop and inspiration for Contemporary Istanbul. Contemporary Istanbul's venue, the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Center, located in the heart of downtown Istanbul, provides an ideal base for exploring the rich cultural attractions the city has to offer.

Already a favorite destination on the global contemporary art fair circuit, Contemporary Istanbul continues to offer a rewarding experience for artists, critics, galleries, collectors, curators and art buyers alike. We hope to see you there.
