Pastoral Dreams

April 13 - June 30, 2021

From April 13 to July 30, 2021, Pera Museum Learning Programs organizes Pastoral Dreams in parallel with the exhibition Etel Adnan: Impossible Homecoming. The program offers different age groups a series of engaging and colorful workshops and tours.

Primary education students explore the exhibition in a guided online tour followed by a workshop on the exhibition in 30-minute events that take place on the Zoom Meeting app. High school students, on the other hand, can take online exhibition tours.    

Teachers from different disciplines explore the exhibition in a guided online tour followed by workshop events on the exhibition. Teachers      also discover ways of integrating Pera Museum collection exhibitions’ curricula-compatible “Teacher Guidebooks” into their classroom activities, accompanying their students in the exhibits, as well as a wide range of activities for different age groups.

Adults will have the chance to join a workshop by artist Eda Gecikmez where they discover various collage techniques, as well as take online tours of the exhibition Etel Adnan: Impossible Homecoming accompanied by guides on the last Wednesday of every month.

Care home residents and their companions take an online guided tour of the Etel Adnan: Impossible Homecoming exhibition during which they get informed about a selection of artworks.

Nudes With Mirrors

Nudes With Mirrors

Although mythological themes are not commonly encountered in Turkish painting, it is possible to see variations of widespread themes such as the Venus at her Toilet. 

History of a Khanjar

History of a Khanjar

Henryk Weyssenhoff, author of landscapes, prints, and illustrations, devoted much of his creative energies to realistic vistas of Belorussia, Lithuania, and Samogitia. A descendant of an ancient noble family which moved east to the newly Polonised Inflanty in the 17th century, the young Henryk was raised to cherish Polish national traditions.

The Search for Form

The Search for Form

A series of small and rather similar nudes Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu and Eren Eyüboğlu produced in the early 1930s almost resemble a ‘visual conversation’ that focus on a pictorial search. It is also possible to find the visual reflections of this earlier search in the synthesis Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu reached with his stylistic abstractions in the 1950s.
