New Exhibition Started at Istanbul Modern

  • Published by Omer Kocaman

Istanbul’s first private museum; The Istanbul Museum of Modern Art presents perspectives from France and Turkey that explores the effects of modernity on contemporary art.

The exhibition, which opened on January 16, looks into the phenomenon of modernity and the confrontation of artists with the modernity project, which is still valid today. The exhibition can be visited until 16 May 2013.

The works in the exhibition focus on the dynamics of modern life, both criticized and considered as an endless opportunity for research by visual arts. In a globalized world, we are going through a period of diverse, profound, and complex relationships in which uses of new technologies and the social media form intricate structures.

The exhibition titled; “Modernity? Perspectives from France and Turkey” attempts to remind us how the remnants of modernity, which constantly reappear in various ways, have seeped into our lives in today’s relatively directionless world. Featuring artists from Turkey and France, a role model for Turkey’s modernization, the exhibition opens for discussion how the remains of modernity can transform the present and the future.

Curated by Çelenk Bafra and Levent Çalıkoğlu, “Modernity? Perspectives from France and Turkey” presents art of following artists: Nevin Aladağ, Fikret Atay, Kader Attia, Ayşe Erkmen, Cyprien Gaillard, Thomas Hirschhorn, Pierre Huyghe, Chris Marker, Sarkis, Hale Tenger, Nasan Tur.
