Galata Rum Okulu

Cultural Centre in Beyoğlu

With works displayed under glass on top of worn wooden desks or lecterns, and exhibition titles written on blackboards, the historical atmosphere of the former Greek Primary School – now a venue for shows by local contemporary artists – often becomes part of the visual experience. The space also hosts big art events, such as the İstanbul Biennial and İstanbul Design Biennial, as well as occasional conferences and lectures.
