The Istanbul Museum of Modern Art was founded in 2004 as Turkey’s first museum of modern and contemporary art. Committed to sharing the nation’s artistic creativity and cultural identity with the local and international art worlds, it hosts a broad array of interdisciplinary activities.
Istanbul Modern embraces a global vision to collect, preserve, display, and document works of modern and contemporary art, photography, design, architecture, new media, and cinema. It acts as an intermediary in the sharing of Turkey’s cultural identity with the international art environment. It supports artists in their productions and their efforts to form international partnerships.
Aspiring to make art accessible to all, Istanbul Modern provides education programs to art followers of all ages.
