Turkish name for autumn is sonbahar, or 'last spring'. Even though the trees and flowers won't blossom, Istanbul's art scene definitely will. After lazy summer nap, the art scene in Istanbul woke up. October (actually already the last day of September) will kick off with Istanbul Gallery Weekend, followed with Days of opened Studios and will finish with Istanbul Design Biennale... and this are only the main events, since most of the galleries are opening new exhibitions these days. So enjoy the October full of art.
