In preparation of its 10th edition, Contemporary Istanbul has taken on pre-eminent international curator, art critic, and historian, Marc-Olivier Wahler, as its Artistic Advisor. Currently Wahler is the founder and director of Chalet Society, Paris, an exhibition space that goes beyond the white box and delves into ideas, education, creation, and collection all in a community space. Previously, in 1995 he co: founded CAN Centre d’art Neuchâtel, Switzerland, and stood as its director until 2000, exhibiting artists during his tenure like Jonathan Monk, Franz West, Mike Kelley, Ugo Rondinone, and Paul McCarthy. In 2000 until 2006 Wahler was at the helm of the Swiss Institute in New York, curating large scale exhibitions with artists, including Urs Fischer, Takashi Murakami, Jim Shaw, and Aleksandra Mir. And, from 2006, until he founded the Chalet Society in 2012, Wahler was the director of the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and was the founding editor of Palais/ Magazine. Under his directorship there, the Palais de Tokyo was regarded as Paris’ best champion of emerging talent.
