Encounters

Works from Akdeniz University Faculty of Fine Arts

September 8 - October 16, 2016

Since its inauguration, Pera Museum has been hosting young artists and their works as part of its support of contemporary art. The tradition continued with an exhibition entitled, Encounters, comprising works by the students and graduates of Akdeniz University’s Faculty of Fine Arts.

Works by students of the University’s Departments of Painting, Sculpture, Graphic Design, Photography, Traditional Arts, and Cinema were presented in an interdisciplinary approach that reflects the school’s diversified educational model. Encompassing works by the first to most recent graduates of the school, as well as those by Master’s students, the selection also contained references to the city’s colorful fabric and the rich cultural infrastructure it possesses. Through the themes of The Metamorphosis of the Body, Abstraction, Conceptual Approaches, Digital Universe-Publicity, and Documentary viewers were able to observe the methods and intellectual processes of the prospective artists trained at Akdeniz University’s Faculty of Fine Arts. The exhibition was curated by Ebru Nalan Sülün.
