Making its presentation in 2004, Istanbul Modern is Turkey's first gallery devoted to showing contemporary craftsmanship. Situated on the Sea of Marmara, the exhibition hall is a 86,000 square foot revamped government distribution center that houses dynamic canvases, representations, models and photos from local craftsmen and public and private accumulations. Istanbul Modern fuses Turkish and Western stylish impacts to make an association amongst Turkish and European foundations of craftsmanship. In spite of the fact that the Turkish government has offered some help, the exhibition hall is secretly supported by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts and the Eczacibasi family, who additionally gives the perpetual gathering. Pulling in 5,000 guests every day, a standout amongst the most well known displays at the historical center is the "Stairway to Hell" by Monica Bonvicini in 2003, a figure highlighting chains and shot smashed glass. Different shows highlight work by Fahrelnissa Zeid and Seker Ahmet Pasa. Istanbul Modern wil l additionally offer workmanship history programs for youngsters and grown-ups. Admission is free on Thursdays from 10 am-2 pm, and rebates are offered for students and groups.
