The 9th edition of The Contemporary Istanbul Art Fair (CI), the leading international art fair that draws attention to the dynamic art scene of this unique metropolis, will take place from November 13th to November 16th 2014 at the Istanbul Congress Centre (ICC) and the Istanbul Convention and Exhibition Centre (ICEC).
The Contemporary Istanbul Art Fair will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2015. Beginning in 2006 CI has had, for the last nine years, a crucial role in the development of a significant art market in Istanbul and is without doubt and together with the Biennial one of the foremost players in this field.
CI also publishes CI Magazine as a vehicle to enhance awareness and knowledge on the subject. CI Editions which will be launched paralel to CI 2014 will focus on promoting the increase in the number of art lovers and art collectors not only in Istanbul but also in the region.
CI’s New Media Section, Plug-In Istanbul was launched last year with the purpose of covering mainly new media, digital and video art. CI’s target is to present the newest contemporary developments in this field.
Briefly, CI is investing in the future so as to always keep her leading position not only in Istanbul but also in the region (Balkans, Black Sea Countries, CIS Countries, Iran, Middle East and Eastern Mediteranian Countries).
