Turkey to host the global art community at Istanbul Art Show

Faizah Kamal 17-Dec-2019

The Istanbul Art Show will bring together contemporary artists and art lovers between Dec. 20 and 22, featuring various art disciplines at the Istanbul Hilton Congress and Exhibition Centre. The theme of this year’s event is “Reality Suspended: Art in the Era of Post-truth.”

“Post-truth,” which has recently been described as the most controversial concept and has definitions such as “surreal” and “post-real,” will be discussed at the fair. The event will draw attention to how the post-truth era will transform art and discuss the role of art and the artist in a world where truth is suspended.

Artist Mercan Dede will prepare the “post-truth” room of the fair.

A separate section of the fair will be reserved for Iran.
