Step Istanbul aims to make art accessible
Istanbul’s new art event Step Istanbul will take place between April 25 AND 28 at Tomtom Designhood. The event’s motto “art that accessible to everyone” will be released with the cooperation of Contemporary Istanbul (CI) and Tomtom Designhood.
Step Istanbul aims to organize projects and events bringing design and art together. Speaking during the launch of the event Rabia Güreli, Vice Chairperson of CI said, “This event will serve as a first step to its guests waiting to discover accessible art. Galleries, artists, art initiatives, art professionals, collectors and those who want to begin collecting come together in Tomtom Kırmızı building and the yard of Italian High-school for four days during the event.”
Step Istanbul will present a selection of contemporary art to local and international participants with its intimate atmosphere. Offering an interdisciplinary program with its side events, it will be an exciting start for artists, galleries and those who will step into the collecting world.
The event aims to reflect art as an accessible phenomenon and targets young collectors who are interested in art and eager to learn. It creates a new platform for art enthusiasts to gain personal experiences and share them.
Step Talks, one of Step Istanbul’s side events, has been prepared by a young curator to create a space for guests to spend pleasant time. The program includes dialogues on the current dynamics of the global art scene and the art production in addition to sections on art criticism, curatorial approaches and new media art.
Besides the speech program, workshops, artist performances and art walks will be held in certain time intervals.
