Tales of Tails
Dogs on Screen

February 10 - February 28 2017

Pera Film’s new program brings together stories of dogs from all around the world as part of Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation İstanbul Research Institute’s The Four-Legged Municipality: Street Dogs of İstanbul exhibition. Tales of Tails: Dogs on Screen explores how cinema reserves a heart-warming celebration of genres and captivating stories of man’s best friend: dogs. The program captures emotions of humans and dogs alike; the collected films come in a variety of visual narratives from drama, comedy, horror, animation, documentaries to the avant-garde. Whether it’s in Patagonia or Budapest, in Oregon or a deserted island in the ocean, these ‘stars with tails’ become symbols of hope or rebellion. In these films, dogs may be a reason to live for their owners and we get to know people through their relationships with these dogs.

Now it is time to wander in these cinematic streets with Bombón, Hagen, Lucy, Truman, Tulip, Otto, Baxter, Lolabelle and many others!

When the Royal Academy of Arts offered Stephen Chambers the opportunity to produce new work for a focused exhibition in the Weston Rooms of the Main Galleries, Chambers turned to print and the possibilities it offered.

With Her Beloved Diego, Mexico, Nickolas and the Masterpieces She Painted From Her Bed: Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico. Exactly 47 years from now, before she died in the same city and her beloved Mexico, many things would happen; she’d meet Diego Rivera, become a world-renowned artist, and allow many of her fans to dress like her on Halloween. 

Baby King

Baby King

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.
