SALT is a not-for-profit institution located in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey. Opened in April 2011, SALT hosts exhibitions, conferences and public programs; engages in interdisciplinary research projects; and sustains SALT Research, a library and archive of recent art, architecture, design, urbanism, and social and economic histories to make them available for research and public use. SALT is a member of LInternationale, an organization of six European art institutions (Moderna galerija Ljubljana [MG, Ljubljana, Slovenia]; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía [MNCARS, Madrid, Spain]; Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona [MACBA, Barcelona, Spain]; Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst Antwerpen [M HKA, Antwerp, Belgium]; SALT [Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey] and Van Abbemuseum [VAM, Eindhoven, the Netherlands]), and artists archives, based on the shared use of collections and archives. LInternationale proposes a space for art within a non-hierarchical and decentralised internationalism, based on the value of difference and horizontal exchange among a constellation of cultural agents, locally rooted and globally connected. SALTs activities are distributed between SALT Beyoğlu and SALT Galata in İstanbul, and SALT Ulus in Ankara within an integrated program structure. The architectural renovation of SALT Beyoğlu and SALT Galata was undertaken by Mimarlar Tasarım, the office of Aga Khan Award for Architecture winner Han Tümertekin, with specific interiors commissioned to design and architecture offices from Turkey. SALT Galata opened November 22, 2011. Originally designed by Alexander Vallaury as the 19th century Imperial Ottoman Bank headquarters, SALT Galata is organized to enable a challenging, multi-layered program that includes SALT Research, offering public access to thousands of print and digital resources; spaces dedicated to research; workshops; an exhibition and conference hall; as well as the Ottoman Bank Museum...

Dark, but with plenty of sharpness. Love the lights-in-the-city effect. I like your note too :)
