About

Galeri Manâ, located in the Tophane district of Istanbul, is a converted wheat mill that dates to the 19th century and features 400 square meters of exhibition space. The gallery takes its name from the Turkish word mana (concept or meaning in Turkish) and was founded by Mehves Ariburnu in 2011.

Galeri Manâ seeks to establish an inclusive and interdisciplinary dialogue through its artistic program, special events and publications. Galeri Manâ works with artists who stand on the edges of contemporary artistic practice by investigating the boundaries of their mediums and expanding their conceptual reach.Through its artistic program, the gallery seeks to represent the vanguard of contemporary art from Turkey and abroad and to find meaningful ways of understanding art produced today in specific social, political and cultural contexts.
