The Grade 10 students of IELEV High School visited he Sakıp Sabancı Museum

The Grade 10 students of IELEV High School visited the exhibitions “Past Present Istanbul” and "From the Reformation to Republic: Master Artists, Artist Students” at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum on Friday 15 October. The exhibition“Past Present Istanbul”brings together works about Istanbul by 22 artist alumni from Sabancı University's Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design program. The 22 exhibiting artists responded to the call of the artist Murat Germen, also an instructor at Sabancı University, all assessing Istanbul’s situation. The exhibition also plays a very important role in raising the awareness of art and artists about the environmental problems we live in and in finding sustainable solutions. “From Reformation to Republic: Master Artists, Artist Students”presents the historical journey of the art of painting in Turkey and features a total of 115 artworks from the SSM Painting Collection Artwork by the masters and their apprentices, who acquired mastership by following in their masters’ footsteps, will be displayed side-by-side. The exhibitionFrom Reformation to Republic: Master Artists, Artist Studentsallows us to trace the social and economic transformation of the country, via the late-discovered but quickly adopted medium of painting. During our trip, the importance of visual literacy, perception and aesthetic awareness in the field of visual arts was highlighted, while at the same time our students were given the opportunity to develop conscious visual behaviour for contemporary culture and art objects.
