Fool for the fairs. Even in Turkey they grow and multiply. Comes Artinternational Istanbul, strategically located in the days of the Biennale

Turkey is evolving rapidly into an important center for contemporary art, so that the competition between art fairs starts to become a phenomenon of importance, especially in the capital.
Besides the annual appointment of November with Contemporary Istanbul, in 2013 will open the new exhibition Artinternational Istanbul. Not the same period of the older sister, but, strategically, premature departure. The new fair, scheduled for September 15, goes so to undermine the success of the existing fair, now in its 7th edition. Two months ahead and the ability to hook up to the first galleries and collectors. The date, among other things, has been chosen to embrace the next edition of the Istanbul Biennial, which will launch in the month of September. Winning move, which ensures an audience extraordinary.
The founder of ArtInternational have seen well, Interteks, a Turkish signature that organizes fairs for over 34 years along with Sandy Angus, who created ArtHK in 2008 and is now at work in the new fair in London, Art13, waiting for next March.
But the former owner of ArtHK is not the only one to focus on Turkey, the team of India Art Fair announced this year that want to expand their network in Istanbul, although the dates have not yet been finalized.
ArtInternational Istanbul will be hosted in the Hasköy Yarn Factory, in the central district of Beyoglu. The selection board is composed of Egemen Bagis, Turkish Minister for Home European Affairs, the curator Jack Persekian, former Director of the Sharjah Biennial, Cigdem Simavi, founder of the Foundation for Fine Arts and Cultural Heritage, Leyla Tara Suyabatmaz, co-founder of Ramp Gallery in Istanbul, and the curator Rose Issa, owner of a space in London focused on Arab and Iranian art.
Still mysterious calendar, which anticipates only a “VIP program” with a visit to artist studios and private collections.
