ArtWalk İstanbul

Artwalk Istanbul is an art project featuring a side of Istanbul off the beaten track.

By simplifying and dividing the complex, yet unmissable art scene of Istanbul, Artwalk Istanbul presents you with an expert guide encompassing contemporary art galleries, institutes and contemporary museums and invites the viewer to the backstage of artistic practice with tours to artist studios; showing you a side to the city never seen before. It’s open to all, whether you’re from Turkey, or not, being an art enthusiast is sufficient for those wanting to get involved.

Artwalk Istanbul’s plans for 2015 are: preparing brand new routes for the design enthusiasts who want to discover the secluded world of design shops and studios; chronicling the monuments, public space installations and sculptures for SculptureWalks; and for the new programme called ArtTalk, organizing talks with artists, collectors, art professionals and curators.

Artwalk Istanbul’s weekly GalleryWalk tours and monthly art studio tours called StudioWalks are both held on Saturdays. Please contact us for private walks, time and route details.
