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.
Ali Sami is born in Rusçuk in 1866, and moves to İstanbul. Because his family is registered in the Beylerbeyi quarter of Üsküdar, Ali Sami is also called Üsküdarlı Ali Sami. He graduates from the Mühendishane-i Berri-i Hümayun in 1866 and becomes a teacher of painting and photography at the school.
The exhibition “Look At Me! Portraits and Other Fictions from the ”la Caixa” Contemporary Art Collection” examined portraiture, one of the oldest artistic genres, through a significant number of works of our times. Paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos shaped a labyrinth of gazes that invite spectators to reflect themselves in the social mirror of portraits.
