The discussions initiated with the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism on the international promotion campaign of Istanbul’s new art event ‘Istanbul Art Week’ has ended with the approval of the funding and implementation of the international promotion campaign by the Ministry. This international promotion campaign includes all kinds of local art events that will take place during ‘Istanbul Art Week’ between 12-17 September 2017.

Since it is more important than ever to continue to reflect Istanbul’s status as an international arts hub, Contemporary Istanbul is establishing Istanbul Art Week in collaboration with the Istanbul Biennale to form a unique visual art scene for the entire city in the second week of September this year. The 12th edition of Contemporary Istanbul will therefore run from 13 to 17 September 2017.

In its first year, Istanbul Art Week will also bring together numerous leading corporate actors of the city’s cultural landscape, such as Sabancı Museum, Istanbul Museum of Modern Art, Pera Museum, Borusan Contemporary, Elgiz Museum, Akbank Sanat, SALT Art Center, Arter Gallery as well as many other outstanding galleries to create a key cultural moment in Istanbul in the second week of September.              

Starting from March 2017, the international promotion campaign of Istanbul Art Week will be implemented through the targeted broadcast, print and online media channels in selected countries and destinations under the auspices of the Republic of Turkey’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Within the scope of the international promotion campaign, participating prestigious art institutions of Istanbul Art Week and their events will be covered by the extensive selection of internationally recognised publications on arts and culture, travel, business and daily newspapers then followed by television and social media channels.
