Future Nostalgia

Virtual Event

April 16, 2021 / 20:00

Pera Museum presents virtual event series “Stage of Plastic Dreams” in collaboration with HYPERCORTEX and with the support of the British Council. Organized in parallel to the A Question of Taste exhibition, the “Stage of Plastic Dreams” event series brings musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants.

In the second event that will take place on April 16, the first performance of the night will bring together Debora İpekel and Ece Düzgit’s music with İpek Hamzaoğlu’s visuals. The mix which narrates an avatar’s day who travels between melodies and rhythms from around the world is presented with familiar and nostalgic cartoons. The second collaborative performance will present Deniz Erdem’s music and Selver Yıldırım’s moving image. The last set will be played by Robogeisha and present Ömer Özçelik and Ahmed Bektaş’s hypnotic visuals. DJ tenderemres will open and close the Stage of Plastic Dreams playing wide range of sounds from dub techno to minimal footwork.

Jean-Michel Basquiat Look At Me!

The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.

Mario Prassinos liked Istanbul more than the current Istanbulites of today. It is obvious that you can understand this from the article written by her daughter Catherine Prassinos in the Pera Museum's book on the artist.
