Contemporary Istanbul Taps New Director

Silvia Koch will be the director of the Contemporary Istanbul’s tenth edition. From 2007 to 2014 Koch worked at Artnet. She’s also organized art exhibitions in Berlin and held positions at galleries such as Galerie Christian Nagel and Arndt Contemporary.

The last edition of the Contemporary Istanbul hosted more than 108 galleries from twenty-three countries. This next edition will include new programming like “CI Education” (a series of education program, conferences, and discussions) and “CI Art Initiatives” (which will feature projects staged by not-for-profit arts organizations. )

“I am looking forward to introducing galleries from East and West to the established and emerging collectors, museums, art critics, and art lovers, and vice versa,” said Koch.
