Anadolu University Faculty of Fine Arts

July 20 - October 2, 2011

Since its inauguration, Pera Museum has been instrumental in promoting young artists and institutions of art education by opening its exhibition halls during the summer months. In 2011, the Museum hosted Anadolu University's Faculty of Fine Arts.

Entitled Present Times, the exhibition was comprised of selected works by young artists and designers enrolled in a wide range of departments at the Faculty. While offering students the opportunity to experiment with the art education of their respective departments, the exhibition also strived to establish itself as a groundwork for problems of contemporary art and design, innovative tendencies, and idiosyncratic identities through a abundance of self-expression possibilities such as painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, installation, interior design, graphic design, photography, digital art, glass, and video.

Our institutions have been stuck on linear Neo-Platonic tracks for 24 centuries. These antiquated processes of deduction have lost their authority. Just like art it has fallen off its pedestal. Legal, educational and constitutional systems rigidly subscribe to these; they are 100% text based.
