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.

Tevfik Uyar

He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.

When regarding the paintings of Istanbul by western painters, Golden Horn has a distinctive place and value. This body of water that separates the Topkapı Palace and the Historical Peninsula, in which monumental edifices are located, from Galata, where westerners and foreign embassies dwell, is as though an interpenetrating boundary.
