A Selection from the Istanbul Modern Collection


Within the scope of the project realized by Istanbul Modern, Turkey’s first modern and contemporary art museum, and Turkish Airlines, a special selection from Istanbul Modern will be displayed in the Turkish Airlines Lounge - Business at Istanbul Airport.

In this exhibition, Istanbul Modern presents a selection from its extensive collection, which comprises works by pioneers and leading exponents of the visual arts from Turkey and around the world. This selection reflects four main tendencies in the evolution of Turkey's modern art: the landscape painting tradition of the early 20th century, the abstract paintings of the 1950s in which artists search for a synthesis between eastern and western art, works illustrating the place of figure painting in everyday life, and compositions interpreting the cultural values of Anatolia from a new perspective.
