Contemporary Istanbul (CI) is pleased to announce its final exhibitors list for the upcoming 12th edition of the fair. New for 2017 is a revised fair design by the award-winning architects Tabanlıoğlu Architects who will create a city-park. The fair will also feature a new sculpture exhibition The Fifth Element at the neighbouring Sanatçılar Park, curated by Prof. Hasan Bülent Kahraman. A place to discover and rediscover significant artists, CI will spread over the 13,600 m2 spaces of Lütfi Kırdar ICEC Rumeli Hall and Istanbul Congress Center with the support of Akbank and associate sponsor Ferko.
CI brings together leading contemporary galleries, artists and collectors from Turkey and around the world, giving a regional and international focus.

CI strongly believes in the critical role of art as a catalyst for dialogue, mutual understanding and reconciliation.
