In Paul Simon's legendary album Graceland, you can easily feel the interactions from Simon's elapse time in South Africa and the discoveries he did there. Under African Skies, which documents Simon's comeback to South Africa to celebrate Graceland's 25th anniversary, is not only about the Paul Simon gig in the country. It also includes some worthy footage from old archives as well as the political backdrop in South Africa from the time the album was recorded.

The Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation’s Orientalist Painting Collection includes two children’s portraits that are often featured in exhibitions on the second floor of the Pera Museum. These portraits both date back to the early 20th century, and were made four years apart. One depicts Prince Abdürrahim Efendi, son of Sultan Abdulhamid II, while the figure portrayed on the other is Nazlı, the daughter of Osman Hamdi Bey.

In 1962 Philip Corner, one of the most prominent members of the Fluxus movement, caused a great commotion in serious music circles when during a performance entitled Piano Activities he climbed up onto a grand piano and began to kick it while other members of the group attacked it with saws, hammers and all kinds of other implements.
