Athens 

Although the crisis in Greece is causing economic and political instability in the country, it is clear that the art scene is not affected by this situation. There are over 50 art collectives in Athens, which use the empty shops for exhibition purposes, and these exhibitions also attract attention from international artists. Considering that Athens will host the world-famous German modern and contemporary art exhibition Documenta in 2017, we can easily say that all eyes will be on this city in the near future.

Istanbul

The contemporary art scene in Istanbul, which gained momentum especially with the opening of SALT in 2011, is becoming increasingly active with the increasing international interest. Currently, it is possible to come across art galleries spread over many parts of the city, from Beyoğlu to Tophane, from Karaköy to Kadıköy. Although Beyoğlu and its surroundings are generally the places preferred by artists to live, Yeldeğirmeni is also very popular with its art workshops and galleries that have been opened one after the other recently. One of the most important events that will spread to the city in waves in the near future is the 14th Istanbul Biennial, which will take place in autumn.

Lima, the capital of Peru, is currently home to many artists from around the world. The art environment of Lima, which has attracted the attention of foreign visitors with the two art fairs ArtLima and PArC held in the past years, is shaped around Miraflores, where the upper class prefers to live, with its luxury shopping shops, beaches and gardens, and Barranco, which is generally attracted by bohemian artists.

Reminding the state of Berlin about 10 years ago, Warsaw draws attention with its endless energy. From museums in restored castles to galleries on the upper floors of buildings that seem to be falling apart, there are exciting developments in contemporary art in Warsaw. Warsaw Gallery Weekend, which will be held for the fifth time in September this year, proves that Poland is a country that must be followed in terms of art, with its wide event program, exhibitions and magnificent organization.

Colombia is a country that has produced many world-famous artists such as Fernando Botero, who is known for his drawings of fat people. Bogota, on the other hand, is a paradise for artists with its galleries and art-loving people, as well as reasonable prices for living. Bogota, one of the most peaceful and comfortable cities to live in with its squares smelling of history, museums and streets where creativity permeates everywhere, is also quite famous for its street arts.

Vilnius, la capital de Lituania, uno de los países bálticos, también alberga el CAC (Centro de Arte Contemporáneo), el centro de arte contemporáneo más grande de la región.

Considered as the capital of art in Latin America in recent years, Sao Paulo has surpassed Rio in this respect. The city, where art is no longer the monopoly of only an elite group, as it used to be, has made Brazilian art known worldwide with new galleries opened in recent years. Sao Paulo, where art can come across in the most unexpected and even strange places, has an art scene that surpasses many European cities, especially by embracing young and talented modern artists.

Announced as the new Berlin by art circles, Leipzig is the new trend among art circles with its affordable flats in apartments built in the 60s and 70s and its old factories converted into studios for artists' work.
