The lower floor includes a Temporary Exhibition Hall that hosts conceptual shows and retrospectives, as well as large-scale and international exhibitions. A Photography Gallery often hosts photography exhibitions by both Turkish and foreign artists and Pop-up areas feature exhibitions in architecture, design, video and new media.
Istanbul Modern also includes a cinema that screens films from around the world, as well as those by rising Turkish filmmakers.
Film screenings at the Istanbul Modern cinema are 8 Turkish lira, but are free for museum visitors.
