26th to 31st OCTOBER 2021

TA London - Turkish Art Week

TA London aims to give Turkish contemporary art a greater presence in the international art scene and to inspire a cross-cultural conversation that will inspire the future evolution of art.

Our story

TA London is the brainchild of London-based artist Renk Erbil, who dreams of international recognition for Turkish contemporary art’s vast contribution to the world stage. This inaugural exhibition is an important step in realising that dream, bringing together some of Turkey’s most acclaimed artists to showcase the breadth of the country’s talent.

Turkish contemporary art has emerged as a formidable player but the international art world seems slow to realise its impact. Turkey is geographically, culturally and historically a gateway between three continents. The Byzantium Empire’s influence was vast and is still felt today. It’s hardly surprising that such historical and cultural genes produce some of the most exciting, diverse and innovative artists.

TA London will represent 21 internationally acclaimed artists from mainland Turkey, Cyprus and the London diaspora community. From pop art to lyric abstraction, the exhibit includes work from a variety of contemporary art movements, techniques and disciplines. Click here for a full list of the exhibiting artists.

Our host Renko London

TA will be run by art company Renko London, the first online Turkish art gallery in the UK. The company expanded its reach to include international artists and recently launched an arts consultancy and events service. Its mission is to bring a multicultural group of artists together in a harmonious, creative space demonstrating the impact art brings when it sits on the shoulders of a diverse community.


The exhibition will run from October 26 to 31 with a VIP opening night on October 26

TA London 2021 promises a packed week of art, talks and performances. We invite you to step into Turkey’s art world, to feel the energy of Istanbul, the serenity of the Turquoise Coast and witness the stories that underscore Turkish contemporary art.

Join us and share a cup of Turkish coffee and a Rich Tea biscuit as we open up to art again after lockdown.
