Zilberman Gallery, founded in Istanbul in 2008, stages 10–12 exhibitions every year at its main gallery spaces in Istanbul and Berlin and at the project space. The gallery occupies two separate floors of Mısır Apartment, one of the most famous examples of art nouveau architecture in Istanbul.
In 2016, Zilberman Gallery opened its new Berlin space in a turn-of-the-century building in Berlin's Charlottenburg neighbourhood.
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 organises artist talks, lecture performances, book launches, as well as round table discussions.
Zilberman 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.
