Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (İKSV) and sponsored by Koç Holding, the 15th Istanbul Biennialtake place between 16 September and 12 November 2017.

The 15th Istanbul Biennial curators, Elmgreen & Dragset, spoke about some of the themes that can be associated with the title and said that the biennial's format will bear traces of being curated by artists. They explained, "'a good neighbour' will deal with multiple notions of home and neighbourhoods, exploring how living modes in our private spheres have changed throughout the past decades. Home is approached as an indicator of diverse identities and a vehicle for self-expression, and neighbourhood as a micro-universe exemplifying some of the challenges we face in terms of co-existence today."

The biennial takes place in different venues throughout the city and, in addition to the exhibition, includes a series of performative interventions as well as a film and public programme.

The 15th Istanbul Biennial is made possible thanks to the sponsorship of Koç Holding and with the further patronage of a number of other supporters, international funders, and funding bodies to be announced.

The Istanbul Biennial advisory board members include Adriano Pedrosa, Başak Şenova, İnci Eviner, Iwona Blazwick and Ute Meta Bauer.
