In Istanbul / 11 September – 14 November 2021

The Istanbul Biennial is a contemporary art exhibition that has held been every two years in Istanbul, Turkey, since 1987. The Biennial has been organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV) since its inception.[1][2] The Biennial aims to create a meeting point in Istanbul in the field of visual arts between artists from diverse cultures and the audience.

The 17th Istanbul Biennial will take place between 11 September and 14 November 2021. The curatorial team for the 17th edition of the biennial will be Ute Meta Bauer, Amar Kanwar and David Teh.

Considered as one of the most prestigious biennials alongside Venice, São Paolo and Sydney, the Istanbul Biennial prefers an exhibition model which enables a dialogue between artists and the audience through the work of the artists instead of a national representation model.
