September 7 - October 24, 2021
Pera Museum continued to collaborate with national and international education institutions to introduce young artists’ and designers’ works to audiences. Curated by Marcus Graf, Confrontation featured art production by the students and graduates of Yeditepe University Faculty’s Fine Arts on the 25th year anniversary of the university. With the participation of professional artists and designers, the exhibition invited people to discuss questions posed by art and design students on the relationship between nature and the city, and on individuals and the society. The exhibition was structured as a multi-layered forum, where the ontology of art and design is discussed from a critical perspective. Confrontation also aimed to go beyond a traditional student and graduate exhibition and constituted a platform where the faculty can face its past and present, invited its audience to explore the impressive worlds of art and culture management, in addition to the present fields of fine arts, graphic design, theater, gastronomy and culinary arts.

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
