With compass history, myths and legends, focusing on images, colors, smells, sounds, traces and symbols of Istanbul, the 101 participating artists highlight mythological, historical and everyday-life moments.

The works of art, which at the vast majority have been created specifically for the exhibition, cover a wide range of artistic expression created by different generations and styles. Exhibited will be 101 artistic attempts at “narration” through painting, sculpture, construction, photography, video and hagiography. Distinct is the presence of younger artists, with works more conceptual and abstract, designed to inspire their archetypal filings of the culture of Istanbul.
