Borusan Contemporary Art Collection
A large variety of artworks are available at Borusan Contemporary, especially in the categories of classical music and visual arts. More than 800 pieces of art make up its hand-selected collection, which was primarily founded in the 1990s with an initial focus on Modern and Contemporary Turkish Art. However, the museum went on to include the works of many other contemporary artists from around the world as well as many other genres of art, such as New Media Arts. The first museum in Turkey to join the International Association of Corporate Collections of Contemporary Art is Borusan Contemporary.
The majority of the museum's many contemporary works of art are within the categories of photography, video art, and new media. The works of many well-known international artists, including François Morellet, Brigitte Kowanz, Ola Kolehmainen, and Edward Burtynsky, are well-represented and well-documented. Of course, the museum hosts a variety of artists from around the world. Numerous local Turkish painters from both the ancient and young generations are also on display here. The iconic artists on display here include Bulent Evren, Ali Kazma, Cevdet Erek, and Ayse Erkmen. Burak Arkan, Serkan Taycan, Lale Delibas, and Evrim Kavcar can be mentioned as examples of well-known emerging artists.
Where Is Borusan Contemporary?
The Borusan Contemporary Museum is located in Istanbul's Sariyer neighborhood, close to the water and the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge. Since there isn't a metro stop very close to the museum, taking one of the large yellow IETT buses is the most convenient mode of transportation. The 22, 22RE, 25E, 40, 40T and 42T buses all stop at Rumeli Hisari, a bus stop located next to the museum.
You can still utilize the metro if you want to. Take the M2 Yenikapi-Hacisman metro line to the M6 Levent-Bogazici University metro station, and then exit at the Bogazici University stop. The museum is a 20-minute walk from there.
From the Anatolian side of Istanbul, you can either use Marmaray and transfer to M2 Yenikapi – Haciosman metro line at the Yenikapi station or get on the ferries that go to Besiktas from Kadikoy or Uskudar and transfer to one of the buses we mentioned above.
