Considering that Esenboğa Airport provided more than 12 million passengers in 2015, every day thousands of passengers have the opportunity to visit TAV Gallery Ankara, where we are delighted to promote the artists and host their artworks that will be exhibited at ARTANKARA Contemporary Art Fair.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank TAV Airports. TAV has been the main sponsor of the fair since the beginning and today they open the doors of TAV Gallery to us.
