> DESCRIPTION

Modernity? Perspectives from France and Turkey explores the effects of modernity on contemporary art. The exhibition looks into the phenomenon of modernity and the confrontation of artists with the modernity project, which is still valid today.

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. Modernity? 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.
