5533 was opened in 2008 by Nancy Atakan and Volkan Aslan as an experimental non-profit art space. Located in the Istanbul Textile Traders’ Market (IMC) Block No. 5, it creates a forum for an interactive review of artistic concepts and practices. The main aims are hosting international projects and interactive events involving exhibitions, artist talks, workshops and round table discussions; conducting art related research, materializing projects, and sharing these with the neighbors, the art community, and the general public.
