recent acquisitions

The Recent Acquisitions exhibition presents a unique insight into current acquisition trends in Turkey and hints at future directions. Curated by Prof. Hasan Bulent Kahraman, this presentation of recently acquired works, selected by leading collectors in Turkey from their own collections, is a continuation of last year’s acclaimed Collectors’ Stories show and an extension of CI’s avid interest in Turkey’s collectors’ circle. Exhibition goers will find wonderful examples of recent acquisitions ranging across all media from paintings to new media art. Inspiring. Eye-opening. Motivating.
