Picasso01

Yesterday we headed to Beyoğlu, one of oldest neighborhoods of Istanbul, to visit few exhibitions. One of them was Engravings and Ceramics from the House of Birth of Pablo Picasso exhibition at Pera Museum.

We are delighted to visit this exhibition. Not only for having the chance to see one more time this master’s brilliant art work, also to see an impressive selection of his engravings and ceramics to observe his stylistic and artistic transitions, how he combine the styles in his work especially in engravings.

Exhibition is open until 20 of April 2014 at Pera Museum, Istanbul. You can also find the book of this small but impressive exhibition at museum shop.

Dün birkaç sergi gezmek üzere Beyoğlu’na yollandık. Bunlardan bir tanesi Pera Müzesi’ndeki Pablo Picasso’nun Doğduğu Evden Gravürler ve Seramikler sergisiydi.

Küçücük turşucuk bir sergiydi ama bayıldık. Sadece bu usta ressamın eserlerini bir kez daha görme şansını yakalamış olduğumuz için mutlu olmadık, aynı zamanda sanatçının özellikle gravürlerindeki üslûpsal ve sanatsal geçişleri, çalışmalarında değişik tarzları nasıl harmanladığını gözlemlememize olanak sunan eser seçimi ve sergileme şeklini de çok sevdik.

Sergi 20 Nisan 2014 tarihine kadar İstanbul’da, Pera Müzesi’nde açık. Ayrıca bu küçük ama etkileyici serginin kitabını da müze dükkânında bulabilirsiniz.

London Art Fair 2013

Today we visited London Art Fair which takes place between 16-20 January 2013 in our neighborhood, at Business Design Centre. London Art Fair celebrates largest-ever fair in 25th year. There are  total of 100 UK and international galleries in the main fair and 30 young galleries exhibiting new work in the Art Projects section. Among them there are art works of major artists like Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Henry Moore, David Hockney, etc. and also lots of young artists. You can own your own Picasso drawing for £57000, Hockney drawing for £28000 and Warhol lithograph for only £5500.

We really enjoyed the fair again but for us there was a proud part of the fair this time. We knew that one gallery from London bought one of the photos of Kerim for one of their artists for using in two of her art works: one collage and one sculpture but we didn’t see the pieces until today. And there was it! It was a big pleasure to see the works where they used the photo and for us it is the most important part of  this year’s fair.

Same as last year, this year also the galleries made a selection for all tastes. So we make a mixed art taste selection also for this post and in the next posts we can share our favorits. Here are some of them:
