Contemporary Istanbul, which has been carried out by Çağdaş İstanbul for the past 13 years, is the leading annual art fair in Turkey, situated at the meeting point of Europe and Asia in one of the great cities of the world. Contemporary Istanbul takes place each September and offers a platform for the city’s thriving art scene, growing art market and collector base, as well as an access point to the best contemporary art from the wider region. As a contemporary art fair that associates its name with the concept of artistic diversity, it brings together galleries, artists, local and foreign collectors and art lovers from all over the world, giving itself a distinct character as a result.
While bringing the historical texture of Istanbul together with the spirit of art and design, Tomtom Designhood not only transforms the region into a design neighborhood with various events such as “Tasarım Tomtom Sokakta”, “Happy Tomtom”, “Back to Home” throughout the year, but also carries different concepts such as fashion, decoration, music, shopping, food and beverage into the heart of the city, Beyoğlu atmosphere.
