"Yıldız Moran: A Mountain Tale" Exhibition Event


A Talk on Yıldız Moran

Thursday, May 16, 18.30

Within the scope of the exhibition “Yıldız Moran: A Mountain Tale”, the exhibition curator Merih Akoğul and Yıldız Moran’s son Olgun Arun are in conversation with Istanbul Modern’s Director General Levent Çalıkoğlu and Istanbul Modern Photography Department Manager Demet Yıldız. The conversation mainly focuses on the photographic artist Yıldız Moran’s (1932-1995) works in the exhibition on a variety of subjects, including nature, abstraction, portraits, everyday life, Anatolia, Istanbul, and places abroad. Examining the 12-year photography career of the artist from 1950 through 1962, the conversation also discusses Moran’s impressionist works that encompass not only the approach to photography of her period but also the new artistic views of our age.
