You look nice in your hair!
Asa Jungnelius and Ahu Antmen

Talk

April 8, 2014 / 19:00

In conjunction with the exhibition Aurora: Contemporary Nordic Glass Art, Asa Jungnelius, a remarkable name from Sweden’s young generation of artists, will be in conversation with art critic Ahu Antmen. The conversation will focus on Nordic countries’ well-established contemporary glass art tradition and how it has evolved, alongside an examination of Asa Jungnelius’ work, which poses questions on identity, gender and consumer society.

The event will be held in English and will be simultaneously translated into Turkish. Free of admissions.

Temporary Exhibition

Aurora

The glass artists hailing from Northern European countries, presented us here in İstanbul with contemporary interpretations of glass, a material inherited from past cultures.

Aurora

Paris Without End (1959-1965)

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). 

Postcard Nudes

Postcard Nudes

The various states of viewing nudity entered the Ottoman world on postcards before paintings. These postcards appeared in the 1890s, and became widespread in the 1910s, following the proclamation of the Second Constitutional Monarchy, traveling from hand to hand, city to city. 

Jean-Michel Basquiat Look At Me!

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.
