SALT has two locations – SALT Galata (which has a separate page on Trip Advisor) and SALT Beyoglu (on Istiklal, which is supposedly this page). SALT – which means "simple" in Turkish – is curated by Vasif Kortun, who is very popular in the contemporary art world. (This review is coming from an art historian!) When I visited there were several cutting-edge... More

The salt Galata project Just in the middle of the very famous Istiklal street, you will find this art project place. It is very big and spreads on four floors. We saw a few different exhibitions all were interesting. The video exhibition was very good and takes some times to watch. Worth a visit.

Find this by the street number 136 as it's not obvious from the street that it's a gallery/museum but it's brilliant inside, provocative and diverse - and free and bigger... More
