From 27 March - 1 April Sotheby’s presents At The Crossroads 2: Contemporary Art from Istanbul to Kabul, an innovative selling-exhibition showcasing top-end contemporary works from the countries of the Caucasus, Central Asia, Turkey and Iran. Building on the success of 2013 exhibition At The Crossroads: Contemporary Art from Caucasus and Central Asia, the second installment will provide an alternative perspective on the context of art production in the region. Expanding the geographical reach to include art from Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, the exhibition will explore complex cultural and social interconnections across the represented countries, from antiquity to today, and how these manifest themselves in contemporary visions and techniques.

The exhibition includes, among others, works by SARKIS, Hera Buyuktasciyan, Murat Akagunduz, Nil Yalter, Yuksel Arslan, Erol Akyavas, Fahrelnissa Zeid, Mehmet Guleryuz, Burhan Dogancay, Sena, Sakir Gockebag, Fatma Bucak and Sibel Horada.
