Confrontation

Yeditepe University Faculty of Fine Arts Exhibition of Students and Graduates

September 7 - October 24, 2021

Pera Museum continues to collaborate with national and international education institutions to introduce young artists’ and designers’ works to audiences. Curated by Marcus Graf, Confrontation features 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 invites 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 is structured as a multi-layered forum, where the ontology of art and design is discussed from a critical perspective. Confrontation also aims to go beyond a traditional student and graduate exhibition and constitutes a platform where the faculty can face its past and present, inviting 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.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.
