Fall is one of the best times to visit Istanbul, when temperatures drop into the 60s and 70s and the summer tourist crowds disperse. Now through November, you can take part in the 14th Istanbul Biennial, the city’s bi-yearly contemporary art exhibition that opens to the public on September 5. This year’s theme is “Saltwater: A Theory of Thought Forms”, and the citywide project will feature work from visual artists, oceanographers, and neuroscientists.
