Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art (Elgiz Çağdaş Sanat Müzesi)

Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art in Istanbul

Since its founding in 2001, the Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, also known as “Proje4L”, has been running various projects to support and promote contemporary artists and works of art, as well as organizing numerous international art fairs and conferences.

Can and Sevda Elgiz are the founders of the museum. They donated their private collection to the permanent exhibition consisting of works by leading Turkish and foreign artists. This contains the developments of the last twenty years, including works by young artists. Furthermore, the museum provides the perfect platform to share experiences and enthusiasm. Here are seminars and discussions with international art collectors on the agenda. On an exhibition area of around 2000 m² there is an open archive room, a conference room as well as other project rooms, which are intended exclusively for young Turkish talents.
