Bedri Baykam’s new exhibit at Piramid Sanat
ISTANBULTurkish painter Bedri Baykam’s 136th solo exhibition, “Backyard” opened at Istanbul’s Piramid Sanat on Feb. 10.
The exhibition, which shows Baykam’s works from between 2013 and 2015, mostly consists of canvas paintings, displaying fresh traces that wink at several of the artist’s older series: “The California Period,” “the Stripe Paintings,” “Girly Plots,” “Real Fakes,” “Lolitart(e),” “Voyeur of History” and “Be My Guest.”
The artworks form a kind of synthesis of the veteran artist Baykam’s own recent past in intellectual and technical terms.
Piramid Sanat will also publish a 156-page catalogue to accompany the exhibition in English and Turkish, including an interview with the painter.
The exhibition in Istanbul will be open until March 27.
