Talk

March 2, 2016 / 19:00

As part of the exhibition Memory and Continuity: A Selection from the Huma Kabakcı Collection, Pera Museum is presenting the talk Hybrid Identities on Wednesday March 2nd at 19:00. Moderated by co-curator Esra Aliçavuşoğlu, the talk will be accompanied by co-curator and collector Huma Kabakcı, and artists Erinç Seymen and Güneş Terkol.

Identity is one of the foremost concepts that contemporary artists reflect upon and analyze; it also constitutes one of the main pillars of the Huma Kabakcı Collection, particularly in relation to the choices of the second-generation collector. Addressing geographical and cultural identity, the ethnic ‘other’, gender and cultural codes as a problematic, this discussion will also analyze the notion of identities through the perspectives of a collector, an art historian, and two artists.

Free of admissions, limited seats.

Memory and Continuity

Collecting works of art in a conscious and systematic manner dates as far back as the Hellenistic era… Having undergone various changes and transformations throughout the different stages of both the history of civilization and art, collecting inherently brings to mind a number of different concepts, passion, the urge to possess, prestige, aesthetic concern, and ideology. 

Memory and Continuity

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
