About Us

Borusan Contemporary is an institution devoted to contemporary art, providing a multi-platform program of exhibitions, events, and educational activities based on the Borusan Contemporary Art Collection while promoting the production of new artworks and publications through commissions.

The defining characteristic of the institution's activities since 2011 is its focus on international artists who incorporate photography, video, sound, light, and software-based technologies into their artistic practices, and on new media art in its broadest sense.

Exhibitions and events are organized at the Perili Köşk, housing the headquarters of Borusan Holding. In virtue of this positioning, a unique art center has been created within an office paradigm, as well as an innovative and creative model in the business world.

Borusan Contemporary Blog maintains its activities as a digital platform where comprehensive analyses of the works of the artists featured in the collection are published. The events organized in parallel with the current exhibitions bring together the themes addressed by the collaborating curators and artists through perspectives of different disciplines to provide audiences with innovative ways of interpretation.

The Borusan Contemporary Art Store is a popular destination for book lovers; besides it offers a selection prepared for both adults and children, as well as publications related to exhibitions and events. The view of the Bosphorus from the Museum Café on the second floor of the Perili Köşk offers a pleasant time-out for Borusan Contemporary visitors.     

Borusan Contemporary is open every weekend between 10:00-19:00, and the visitor entrance closes at 18:00.
