Contemporary Istanbul, amongst the youngest art fairs in the world and already established as one of the most promising in the region, prepares to welcome an even greater crowd of art lovers in 2007. Following the successful debut of 2006, Contemporary Istanbul expands to host more institutions in late November, at the height of the region's arts market.

Contemporary Istanbul 2007 edition, scheduled to run on November 29-December 2, will build on the success of the past year. Planning to attract dozens more exhibitors, coming from the eastern and the southern parts of the globe as much as the northern and the western, CI'07 will also host a wider range of events, letting the visitors enjoy roundtable talks, performance art, and musical nights alongside the various forms of contemporary arts on display.

Istanbul, a teeming hub of cultural activity and long a symbol of a union of the East and the West, sets both the backdrop and the inspiration to Contemporary Istanbul. CI's central location in the heart of Istanbul is ideal for enjoying the city along with the art.

Contemporary Istanbul, with its evolving format, continues to be a rewarding experience for artists, critics, galleries, collectors, curators, and the occasional art buyers, alike.
