Have you ever thought about weaving your own fabric? It is not at all difficult; all it takes is some thread, a few basic materials and knowledge of the weaving technique. In this workshop, inspired by the fabrics used by artists Adrien Vescovi, Güneş Terkol, Paul Maheke and Ilana Halperin in the exhibition Crystal Clear, we first prepare a weaving loom before designing our own colorful fabric to experience weaving as a tool of artistic expression.

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.

The First Nudes

The First Nudes

Men were the first nudes in Turkish painting. The majority of these paintings were academic studies executed in oil paint; they were part of the education of artists that had finally attained the opportunity to work from the live model. The gender of the models constituted an obstacle in the way of characterizing these paintings as ‘nudes’.
