Yannick Vu & Ben Jakober Works 1982 - 2012

October 13, 2012 - January 6, 2013

The exhibition Flash Back: Yannick Vu & Ben Jakober Works 1982 – 2012, presented simultaneously with the Golden Children, 16th-19th Century European Portraits exhibition, allowed insight into different aspects of the couple, not only as artists but also as collectors, highlighting 30 years of creativity.

The exhibition, Flash Back presented individual early works of Yannick Vu and Ben Jakober, together with their collaborative works beginning from 1993. As Flash Back allowed us to contemplate and understand the art of Vu and Jakober individually, it also enabled us to recognize within the collaborative works a third artist, and appreciate a process engendered by an interaction of different sensitivities in the works created.

Giacometti: Early Works

Giacometti: Early Works

Organized in collaboration with the Giacometti Foundation, Paris, the exhibition explores Giacometti’s prolific life, most of which the artist led in his studio in Montparnasse, through the works of his early period as well his late work, including one unfinished piece. Devoted to Giacometti’s early works, the first part of the exhibition demonstrates the influence of Giovanni Giacometti, the father of the artist and a Swiss Post-Impressionist painter himself, on Giacometti’s output during these years and his role in his son’s development. 

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

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’.
