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.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
