Established with a mission to promote the development of contemporary art in Turkey, the initiave focused on giving space, support and international visibility to projects by young Turkish artists. Now, converted to a private collection museum under the name Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art, the eclectic content of the collection allows the viewer to enjoy a comprehensive journey through the major contemporary art movements of the last two decades, while promoting the globalization of Turkish art. With the integration of new works by young artists the Elgiz Collection maintains its dynamism and prevalence.
