Jake & Dinos Chapman: In the Realm of the Senseless
Curator: Nick Hackworth 10 February7 May 2017
Arter presents "In the Realm of the Senseless", Jake & Dinos Chapman's first solo exhibition in Turkey. Bringing together major works from a number of their iconic series including "Hell", "The Chapman Family Collection" and "One Day You Will No Longer Be Loved", alongside new and rarely seen works, the exhibition offers an overview of the Chapmans' virulently pessimistic art and thought. Deploying humour and a perverse semiotics to undercut and satirise many of the unthinking beliefs that animate contemporary culture, the Chapmans' is amongst the most challenging of contemporary art practices.
Ways of Seeing
Curators: Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath 2 June20 August 2017
Taking its cue from Ways of Seeing, John Berger's 1972 critical text on visual culture, this exhibition explores the various formalistic strategies that artists employ to re-configure our perception of the world. Curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, the exhibition posits the surface of the artwork as a space of encounter between the internal aesthetic deliberations of the artist's creative process and the external often-conditioned gaze of the viewer. "Ways of Seeing" presents contemporary paintings, photographs, sculptures and videos, alongside artworks that span several centuries. It unfolds along a non-linear temporal thread whereby the viewer's desire to "understand through seeing" is constantly challenged through artworks that refuse to operate along the rigidity of styles, genres, and so-called "isms." In doing so, we are reminded that "the relation between what we see and what we know is never settled." It is in this inherently political process of searching, that we begin to discover several ways of seeing
Solo Exhibition: CANAN
Curator: Nazlı Gürlek 13 September24 December 2017
CANAN's solo exhibition at Arter will feature new and existing works produced since late 1990s up until today. CANAN's works often involve the use of her own body to underlie the ways in which the personal meets the political as well as take the form of complex spatial installations that celebrate the freedom of suppressed individuals and novel ways of expression. This survey exhibition will offer a large overview of the artist's practice that covers a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, performance, photography, print, video, textual and spatial installations as well as traditional forms of expression such as miniature and embroidery.
