BLOK art space was founded to become a junction for contemporary art projects that needs a “space”. Alongside permanent exhibitions, performances, seminars and events, the space aims to support street projects by being inclusive to its surroundings. It is a contemporary art project space that welcomes interdisciplinary collaborations and works that incorporate techniques formed within contemporary art through science and technology.
CDA-Projects is situated in the contemporary art district of Istanbul on the busy Istiklal street. It opened its doors in the prestigious Misir Apartments Building in 2009 and has been focusing on Turkey's contemporary art scene ever since. CDA-Projects' mission has been to provide a platform both for established and emerging artists who work on paintings, sculpture, photography, installation, video and new media. Its goal is to make their art accessible to an ever widening audience. Rather than being a solely profit-oriented gallery, CDA-Projects runs artist-led programs and organizes exhibitions with independent curators.
