Art in Swissôtel The Bosphorus Istanbul
One of the world’s leading hotels, Swissôtel The Bosphorus, Istanbul offers its guests a five-star experience in the heart of the city. With its privileged and successful projects, Swissôtel offers more than hospitality services, it makes special projects and partnerships happen.
With an endless devotion for supporting art and artists, Swissôtel has brought to life a brand new project which provides the hotel guests new meaningful experiences.
With a new partnership with Art50.net, an online contemporary art platform which aims to bring all artlovers together with artists and collectors, Swissôtel has re-situated itself as an art center.
As part of this project, Art50.net artists’ artworks are exhibited in key locations of the hotel which include the Gabbro Resto-bar, lobby and reception areas. Through a selection of multi-disciplinary artworks, and changing thematic presentations in every three months, Swissôtel will present Art50.net’s rich artwork portfolio to its guests.
Uğur Talayhan expressed his excitement about this new project which features young artists’ contemporary artworks with these words: “ As Swissôtel The Bosphorus, Istanbul, we have always been taking steps to make a difference. With this special collaboration with Art50.net, we are aiming to grow our support for arts and artists. It is a great pleasure to display Art50.net’s rich artwork portfolio in our hotel and hence encourage our guests to see us as more than a hotel, as a place to collect valuable experiences and as a venue to meet with art. As an artlover, I believe that this project fits perfectly to Swissôtel.
The first exhibition of the collaborative project between Swissôtel The Bosphorus and Art50.net is Soul Map which presents works by art50.net artists, Ece Gauer, Müge Ceyhan, Handan Akarsu and Haydar Akdağ.
“Soul Map” explores people, cultural transformations, cultural interactions and traces. The exhibition will run until 28 April 2019 in the Swissôtel The Bosphorus Gabbro Resto-Bar, lobby and reception areas.
