About us

    Plato Sanat is an exhibition space for contemporary art. Initiated by Istanbul Ayvansaray Unıversity in April 2010, it is situated in Balat campus. The art space targets both the art audience and the institutions’ own students–studying art, design and communication. As all exhibitions and performances are a daily routine of their practice, the space inherently serves as an open laboratory of observation, research and allocation. Furthermore, Plato Sanat encourages production of contemporary artworks, supports young upcoming artists and focuses on new presentation techniques. The gallery space also acts as a supplementary role in all exhibition designs.
