SALT Beyoğlu and SALT Galata

This month’s Long Thursday, taking place on November 29, will include building tours at SALT Beyoğlu and SALT Galata, as well as guided tours of the Fall exhibitions at SALT. The tours will start at the ground floor of both buildings at 19.00 and 20.00.

The tour of İstanbul Eindhoven-SALTVanAbbe: Modern Times, one of the exhibitions at SALT Galata, will be guided by Vasıf Kortun, Director of SALT Research and Programs. The exhibition brings together the works of 43 eminent artists, from Pablo Picasso to Yüksel Arslan and from Raoul Dufy to Fikret Mualla.

Another exhibition at SALT Galata, titled The Performance of Modernity: ATATÜRK KÜLTÜR MERKEZİ, 1946-1977, focuses on the construction story of AKM. You can find out about the significance of this iconic building during the tour guided by the curators of the exhibition, Pelin Derviş and Gökhan Karakuş.

On the other hand, SALT Beyoğlu hosts the most comprehensive exhibition to date of artist-musician-writer Hassan Khan. You can see a selection of videos, sculptures, texts, photographs and installations Khan has produced since the mid-90s during the tour guided by Duygu Demir, from SALT Research and Programs.
