Dokuz Eylül University Faculty of Fine Arts Student Projects
10 August – 30 September 2012
Since its inauguration, Pera Museum has been welcoming young artists and institutions of art education during summer months. This year, the Museum is hosting Dokuz Eylül University’s Faculty of Fine Arts from İzmir.
The faculty, comprised of a wide range of departments, carries the additional distinction of being the first university faculty of fine arts in Turkey. The faculty, which has left 40 academic years behind, aims to create a model of education whereby theory and practice, the traditional and the contemporary, the pioneering and the conceptual coincide in harmony.
The exhibition Beyond Experience, composed of selected works by young artists and designers from the Faculty of Fine Arts, aims to establish itself as a groundwork for aesthetic experience through a plethora of modes of self-expression, including painting, sculpture, ceramics, installation, stage design, graphic design, photography, and film.
