Between Feb. 5 and April 20, Istanbul’s Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation at Pera Museum is set to host two international exhibitions. The works in “Picasso Engravings and Ceramics from the House of His Birth” are made up of works selected from the Museo Casa Natal Collection, from the house in which Picasso was born in Málaga, Spain.
The exhibition will present viewers examples of the artist’s various stylistic transitions. While the engravings, which reflect the unending quests of Picasso’s career, extend from realistic depictions of certain subjects to Cubist interpretations, they are also accompanied by his ceramics and personal objects.
The other exhibition at the foundation is “Contemporary Nordic Glass Art,” which will bring together works by leading artists of contemporary glass art from Nordic countries. The wide range of glass art examples to be displayed for the first time in Turkey are selected from the works of 25 globally renowned artists from Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Iceland. The show will present viewers with unconventional artistic applications on glass, a material that holds a significant place in our daily lives but isn’t usually associated with artistic expression.
