Borusan Contemporary

Istanbul, Turkey

Borusan Contemporary is a multi-platform program of exhibitions, events, educational activities, new commissions, and site-specific installations based on the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection in Istanbul. These activities are defined by their specific focus on media arts broadly defined, i.e. artists who work with time, light, technology, video, software, and beyond. Most programs take place at Perili Köşk and co-exist with the offices of Borusan Holding creating a unique museum-in-an-office setting. The building including the galleries, office spaces, café, shop, and outdoor terraces are open to the public on weekends.

Borusan Contemporary retained Bow Bridge to promote their efforts to expand their profile in the U.S. and internationally in 2017, through a suite of exhibitions at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, a pop-up gallery event in New York City, and their Diana Thater exhibition coinciding with the 2017 Istanbul Biennial.
