Sabancı University's Sakıp Sabancı Museum hosted an exhibition of works by Pablo Picasso, one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists. Picasso in Istanbul was the first major exhibition devoted to a western artist to be held in Turkey, with 135 paintings covering every period of his work. The exhibition brought together works from the Picasso Museums in Paris and Barcelona, the Lille Modern Art Museum, Fundación Almine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso para el Arte (FABA), and the family collections, selected by Picasso's grandson Bernard Ruiz-Picasso. In addition, the exhibition featured photographs of the artist taken by famous photographers.
Picasso in Istanbul was made possible by Sabancı Holding, and in cooperation with FABA and the French Cultural Centre in İstanbul.
