The Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) established the Young Artist Fund in 2022, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, to support young artists in their new productions. The fund offers artists the opportunity to produce new works for the Istanbul Festivals and the Istanbul Biennial, fostering and amplifying younger voices in the art world.
İKSV 50th Anniversary Young Artist Fund was created with donations raised in two special events organised as part of İKSV’s 50th anniversary celebrations. In the 50th Anniversary Fundraising Gala, organised in Istanbul with the venue sponsorship of Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus, and Istanbul Calling auction held in October in collaboration with Christie’s London, a total amount of 650,000 USD was raised for the Young Artist Fund.
İKSV would like to thank the individuals and organisations who contributed to the İKSV 50th Anniversary Young Artist Fund with their support.
