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.

1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
