Stage of Plastic Dreams

March 12 - May 28, 2021

Pera Museum presented virtual event series “Plastik Düşler Sahnesi” (Stage of Plastic Dreams) in collaboration with HYPERCORTEX and with the support of the British Council.

Organized in parallel to the A Question of Taste exhibition, the “Plastik Düşler Sahnesi” event series brought musicians and visual artists together in a virtual event space open to participants. The series aimed to offer an experience similar to that of a physical venue with its spatial sound design, interactive objects and interaction opportunities between participants in an alternative format to online events, which have become increasingly popular due to the pandemic, while supporting musicians and visual artists who have been greatly affected by the pandemic.

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’.
