Look Again

March 31 - April 2, 2017

Pera Museum’s performance project Look Again presented in collaboration with Performistanbul celebrated the art of performance as well as the visitor experience through the museum’s collection exhibitions. Curated by Simge Burhanoğlu, founding director of Performistanbul Look Again took place over three days throughout the Pera Museum’s collection exhibitions: Intersecting World: Ambassadors and Painters, Coffee Break: Kütahya Tiles and Ceramics, and Anatolian Weights and Measures. The artists I. Ata Doğruel, AslieMk, and Ekin Bernay have been working closely with the museum’s collections and presented their own interpretations. This performance program facilitated a new look into the museum’s collection and exhibiting practices.
