Perhaps Turkey’s leading destination, SALT is the exciting home of a number of contemporary, interdisciplinary non-profit projects and programmes as a multi-fuctional cultural complex. Their dedication to research and the understanding of visual culture has pushed this destination to the forefront of progressive thinking, and allowed them to create both thought-provoking exhibitions and establishing SALT Research and SALT E-Publishing, two incredible sources for the study of art.


Aside from their academic contributions, this tall 19th century townhouse shows exhibitions of all genres and mediums. Visitors can always expect the unexpected – eclectic mixes of architectural, anthropological, sound, performative, and traditional visual works are all welcomed, and displayed democratically, and equally appreciatively. Afterwards, you can even discuss what you’ve seen on the building’s beautiful rooftop garden, with great views of the city.


Overall, this is an excellent destination that gives us a glance into the future of art display – going beyond the bounds of exhibition into innovation and progressive exploration, leading the way for the growing, artistically expanding city of Istanbul.
