Pera Museum salutes Contemporary Balkan Art with Cold Front from the Balkan in Fall of 2016.
In the collaboration with Ljubljana Museum and Galleries, Pera Museum is proud to host a fascinating exhibition on contemporary art: Cold Front from the Balkans.
Co-curated by Alenka Gregorič and Ali Akay, both well-versed in contemporary Balkan art, the exhibition offers important and meaningful glimpses into contemporary art production in a range of Balkan countries,
Cold Front from the Balkan question contemporary art and the artistic system in the Balkans and strives to make room for a considerably more profound discussion of contemporary art production in the Balkans. Grouped into themes such as "Symbols", "Ideology", "Revolutions", "Geography", "System of Art", and "Body", the exhibition will certainly draw the attention it rightfully deserves from the art circles in Turkey.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to our partner Ljubljana Museum and Galleries, exhibition curators Alenka Gregorič and Ali Akay, all the artists whose works are displayed in the exhibition, the diligent team of Sauna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Pera Museum, and all other individuals and institutions that have contributed towards this exhibition.
