The exhibition Re/Framing Louis Kahn: Photographs by Cemal Emden – Drawings and Paintings focused on the architectural and artistic works of Louis I. Kahn – architect, thinker, artist, and an “architectural guru” who is considered among the leading figures of 20th century architecture. Curated by Müge Cengizkan, the exhibition brought together drawings and photographs of architectural works from Pennsylvania, where Kahn lived, worked, and lectured – to Dacca and Ahmedabad, as well as his paintings and unique interviews. The exhibition’s focus was based on photographs that reframe Kahn’s buildings through themes such as “constructing the ground” and “kneading the program.” It also offers new insights into Kahn’s ideas through his visionary writings, which have been translated into Turkish for the first time. The exhibition featured video interviews with Middle Eastern Technical University graduate architects and instructors who had been Khan’s students in the States. For this first Louis I. Kahn exhibition in Turkey, the selection included Khan’s charcoal and color drawings and paintings as well as his own writings and books in an attempt to frame his intricate personality.

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
