Purely abstract works at Mixer
“Salt Soyut / Purely Abstract” focuses attention on examples of non-representational works being insufficiently valued in today’s contemporary scene and aims to re-examine this by looking at the issue through Turkey’s modernization.
The event is being held with the participation of Funda Alkan, Yeni Anıt, Ahmet Duru, Eceşan Erdem, İsmail Anıl Güzeliş, Ahmet Sait Kaplan, Hakan Kırdar, Gülay Yaşayanlar, Orhan Yıldız.
Abstract art is not only seen as the instigator of a period of widespread and radical changes to Western society, it is also considered a fundamental component in the evolution of countries, and cities, from traditional ones to their modern counterparts.
The term “purely” is used in the exhibition’s title to emphasize the “abstract” – a nonfigurative art, and to differentiate it from “abstraction” – a figurative approach. Thus, more clearly, we are able to affirm both the internal dynamics of art and investigate how these dynamics transform the socio-cultural structure of society.
