During this guided art-walk, we will visit a variety of galleries, young and established, where you will get to meet with the owners and directors of the galleries as well as their artists and get their invaluable insights on contemporary Turkish art. Unfortunately galleries have a negative reputation of not being friendly, with these visits you will definitely feel at home, very much welcomed and cared for.
Since 2001 I've worked in multiple non-profit and commercial art spaces. I work as an art advisor sharing my passion with anyone interested in art since 2014. Throughout the years I've built sustainable relationships with galleries and artists. These relationships, along with my knowledge and expertise, allow me to create unique and highly informative guided art tours where you will also get to meet with these wonderful individuals who are part of the art eco-system.
Basic refreshments such as tea, coffee and water will be provided at each of our stops.
A typical tour starts at the Juma Art Building from where we will hike up Boğazkesen and visit the smaller galleries scattered on the side streets of the hill. We will finally head all the way up to the famous Mısır Apartment to visit Galeri Nev which is the most established gallery in Istanbul.
