Turkey's new generation artist platform, BASE, continues bringing together the works of young graduate artists from around the world, to Istanbul. Last year, it introduced 116 works of art from 108 new graduate artists from 31 universities in 20 cities, and welcomed 12,000 visitors. The second BASE event is to take place from Dec. 19 to 23, 2018.
