Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Exhibition Tour

Guided Tour

May 26, 2023 / 19:00

Kütahya, the most important ceramic production centre after Iznik during the Ottoman period, is a city that has kept this art alive with its traditional methods until today. In the 18th century, Kütahya tile-making, which gave its most competent examples and then declined with the decrease in production and diversity, was revived in the late 19th century. As an "urban art" in a line between Iznik and Çanakkale tile-making, it became one of the essential parts of the Ottoman art mosaic with its rich product range and continuity.

In the guided tour, social, cultural and communal life in the Ottoman Empire is analysed through the motifs in the works in the Coffee Break exhibition and the Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics Collection. Participants have the opportunity to see artefacts that are not on display in the show.

Turkish coffee is offered to our guests participating in the exhibition tour at Pera Cafe.

The 30-minute guided tour is free of charge, and the language is Turkish. The quota is limited. To join the tour, you can make a reservation via resepsiyon@peramuzesi.org.tr e-mail address.

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

In the 60s, Alberto Giacometti paid homage to Paris, the city where he lived, by drawing its streets, cafés, and more private places like his studio and the apartment of his wife, Annette. These drawings would make up his last book, Paris sans fin (Paris Without End).

It was a quiet night in the dessert. Even the mice weren’t around. A few LEDs blinked in the dark, and the sound of a fan filled the infinite void. The conversation cutting the silence seemed to go nowhere.
