Istanbul Modern, Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art, has opened its final collection exhibition at its temporary space in Beyoğlu district. The museum, one of the most important hubs for contemporary galleries in the city, will move once the construction of the permanent presentation is completed in Galataport in the city's Karaköy district.
Since its founding in 2004, Istanbul Modern has organized collection exhibitions that show the evolution and transformation of modern and contemporary art in Turkey as well as the international orientation of the museum's acquisitions. The newest collection exhibition presents the development of abstract and figurative paintings in Turkey during the post 1950 period and contemporary artworks that deal with nature and the environment. It brings together 40 artworks by 30 artists and two artist duos and includes works that will be presented to the public for the first time. The show focuses on recent works by artists who are concerned about ecological issues and deal with nature in their paintings, sculptures, videos, installations and photography.
