Located in an ancient generator factory and founded by Suela J.Cennet, ex-Director of Daniel Templon Gallery (Paris/Brussels),The Pill ® is an international contemporary art gallery based in the historical peninsula of Istanbul by the Golden Horn. Founded in 2015 and launched in January 2016, the gallery operates as a global platform that brings together local and international artists. Initially imagined as a mobile naval project space, the gallery aims to create a fertile environment for multidisciplinary contemporary art and to increase the visibility of the Turkish art scene by collaborating with local institutions and by inviting international artists to cultivate and challenge their practices in a new territory. Since its opening, the gallery has established itself as one of the most influential players in the region with its artists becoming part of musuem collections, biennales and art prizes, and its exhibitions being reviewed in international publications, such asArtReview, Art in America, Frieze and Artforum amonst others.
