Panel on ‘New Metropolises of Art’ at Istanbul’s Pera Museum
“The New Metropolises of the World of Art” is the last panel organized this year in the framework of World Art Day by the International Association of Art (IAA) Turkish National Committee. The IAA is an official partner of UNESCO.
It will take place at Istanbul’s Pera Museum on April 20 between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.
The panel will discuss how cities like Istanbul, Shanghai, Dubai, Sharjah, Singapore, and Sydney have taken over status as the new metropolises of the world of art in 21st century, leaving cities like Paris, London, and New York in the shade.
By the same token, the panel will look at the geographical and contextual changes art has undergone due to the overwhelming impact of the financial system and the “new world economic order.” It will enable us to ponder upon the new communication and marketing techniques that are currently in question.
The speakers will be Edward Lucie-Smith, Alistair Hicks, Oya Delahaye, and Emin Mahir Balcıoğlu and the panel will be moderated by IAA world president Bedri Baykam.
Simultaneous translation will be available during the event.
