Beyond Experience

Dokuz Eylül University Faculty of Fine Arts

August 10 - September 30, 2012

Since its inauguration, Pera Museum has been instrumental in promoting young artists and institutions of art education by opening its exhibition floors during the summer months.  In 2012, the museum hosted Dokuz Eylül University’s Faculty of Fine Arts from İzmir.  The faculty, comprised of a wide range of departments, carries the additional distinction of being the first university faculty of fine arts in Turkey. The faculty, with 40 academic years behind it, aims to create a model of education whereby theory and practice, the traditional and the contemporary, the pioneering and the conceptual coincide in harmony.  The exhibition Beyond Experience, consisted of selected works by young artists and designers from the Faculty of Fine Arts, aiming to establish itself as a groundwork for aesthetic experience through a plethora of modes of self-expression, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, installation, stage design, graphic design, photography, and film.

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.
