The works of outstanding 20th century artist Marc Chagall were exhibited in Turkey for the very first time at the Pera Museum.
The 160 works by Chagall (b. 1887, Vitebsk, Russia, d. 1985, Saint-Paul-de-Vence, France) were comprised of prints, drawings and paintings selected from the rich collection of The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
The exhibition showcased a unique selection that revealed Chagall's multi-faceted personality and vivid world of imagination. Accompanying the drawings, which reflect Chagall’s life and his love for his first wife Bella, the exhibition also showcased his illustrations for the Holy Book and for literary works such as The Fables of La Fontaine, and Gogol's Dead Souls. Representing his signature style, themes such as Russian folklore, Jewish traditions and lovers stand out in Chagall's works.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together. At the heart of a collection is memory, nurtured from the past and projecting into the future.
Nam June Paik was video art’s pioneer (1932 –2006).
