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.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.

Dancing on Architecture

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
