Open since 2001 (formerly in Levent and now in Maslak), Proje4L/Elgiz Museum of Contemporary Art is a privately-owned non-profit institution dedicated to contemporary art. The museum was established in order to support the development of contemporary art in Turkey and to promote young Turkish artists in international platforms.
In addition to temporary exhibitions, the permanent Elgiz Collection consists of works by influential Turkish and international artists, such as Ömer Uluç, Fahrelnissa Zeid, Abdurrahman Öztoprak, Tracey Emin, Jan Fabre, Barbara Kruger, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol, Julian Schnabel, Sol LeWitt, Peter Halley, Paul McCarthy, Gilbert&George, Robert Rauschenberg, and Doug Aitken.
