Istanbul Modern

Due to COVID-19 Coronavirus in Turkey, the Istanbul Modern Museum has been forced to temporarily close in an effort to help contain the pandemic. Due to this, the Istanbul Modern museum is welcoming art enthusiasts to visit their website and digital platforms where their exhibitions and collections can be viewed virtually.

What can you expect to see?

On visiting the museum website, you can take a 3D tour of the latest collection, “Artists in Their Time,” in Karakoy. There are opportunities for virtual visitors to explore 193 works by 109 different artists, as well as reading the text provided by the museum about the exhibition. The exhibition is hoping to get visitors thinking about the artist’s time and how this can be connected to the time of society, nature, culture and the universe.

The museums website also gives visitors digital access to the archived exhibition, “One Hundred Years of Love” which was created as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Turkish cinema. This archive provides written and visual content about the archived research exhibition which was the first ever held in Turkey.
