Art from Nature: Tempera Paint Workshop
DIY Workshop Kit

Pera Kids
Ages 7-12

Do you know that artists used to manufacture their own paint in the past? Would you like to produce your own paint, and then paint on handmade paper just like them?

In this workshop, we prepare tempera paints from powder pigments used in historical miniatures, as well as eggs. Then using these tempera paints, we draw shapes and patterns on handmade paper produced by recycling. Through this activity, we discover the joy of producing paint from natural materials, and letting our imagination free in our paintings. 

Important Information:
The required materials and the video on stages of production will be delivered by cargo.

Everyone purchasing this workshop will be entitled to participate in the guided online exhibition tour on 26 November 2020 and 24 December 2020 at 17:00. The online guided tours will be in Turkish.

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry <br> Galip Dursun

Midnight Horror Stories: The Last Ferry
Galip Dursun

I remembered a game as I was waiting in the passenger lounge for the ferry to arrive just a few minutes ago. A game we used to play at home when I was young, in my country that is very far away from here, a relic from the distant past; I don’t even remember how we used to play it. The kind of game that makes me feel a thousand times lonelier than I already am among the crowd waiting to get on the ferry.

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

From Cypresses to Turkish Landscapes

Among the most interesting themes in the oeuvre of Prassinos are cypresses, trees, and Turkish landscapes. The cypress woods in Üsküdar he saw every time he stepped out on the terrace of their house in İstanbul or the trees in Petits Champs must have been strong images of childhood for Prassinos.

Fluid Identities Creating an Identity / Hybrid Identities

A firm believer in the idea that a collection needs to be upheld at least by four generations and comparing this continuity to a relay race, Nahit Kabakcı began creating the Huma Kabakcı Collection from the 1980s onwards. Today, the collection can be considered one of the most important and outstanding examples among the rare, consciously created, and long-lasting ones of its kind in Turkey.
