ARTİST / İSTANBUL ART FAIR

Greetings,

Organized by TÜYAP Fairs, ARTIST 2018 / the 28th Istanbul Art Fair will be held between November 10 and 18, 2018 at the TÜYAP Fairs and Convention Center.
 
The 28th edition of ARTIST / İstanbul Art Fair deals with the difficult and prolific notion of "Experience." The event hopes to be a profound, challenging and provocative praxis with artist initiatives from Turkey and the world. The Fair invites all participants to discuss the concept of Experience from the perspective of esthetics, ethics, labor, science, science-fiction, technology, history and popular culture.

Galleries, initiatives and institutions wishing to take part in ARTIST 2018 will first be asked to decide upon the artists whose works will be exhibited in the event. In addition it is required for galleries, initiatives and institutions to submit a dossier* that contains the CVs and portfolios of their designated artists. Dossiers will be evaluated by the Art Fair Advisory Board and applicants will be notified of the final decision. 

Please note that applications sent by individual artists are not taken into consideration.

The decision will be based on the competence of portfolios as well as the exposition space availability in the event hall.
