Zilberman Gallery was founded in Istanbul in 2008. Its aim is twofold: to promote contemporary artists from Turkey internationally and to introduce international artists to the local art scene. Zilberman Gallery stages 10-12 exhibitions in a year at its main gallery space and project space. The gallery occupies two separate floors of Mısır Apartment, one of the most famous examples of art nouveau architecture in Istanbul, designed in 1910 by Ottoman Armenian architect Hovsep Aznavur.

Zilberman Gallery represents artists from Turkey such as Ahmet Elhan and Azade Köker, challenging the limits of their chosen medium, Şükran Moral, a seminal figure in performance art in Turkey and internationally acclaimed artists, like Walid Siti, known for his poetic and monumental works on Middle Eastern geography. The gallery also works with new generation of emerging international artists.

The gallery has a strong presence at international art fairs, forging close relationships with collectors, curators and art professionals, and creating opportunities for gallery artists. With the firm belief that a commercial gallery should also assume its social responsibility of education and audience development, Zilberman Gallery organizes artist talks, lecture performances, book launches, as well as round table discussions.

In addition to Zed Grant, an annual research award of €10,000, the gallery also provides the artists with the opportunity to live and work in Berlin through it's new artist-in-residency program.

Concluding each years' exhibition season, Zilberman Gallery curates Young Fresh Different, a group show with a selection of works chosen by an independent jury from applications made to a nationwide open call.
