CISTERN EVENT

THREE GENERATIONS , THREE WAYS 10.12.2012

The way to progress in art is to practise what you learn. This is the theme of the new exhibition in Nakkas Cistern: Three Generations, Three Ways.

With the collaboration of Prof. Hans Herpich's exhibition in 2009 (From Where to Where) and 2010 (Master and Masterstudent), both held in Nakkaş Art Gallery, this exhibition focused on textile art in which the main idea was the changing faces of traditionalism under different cultures' influence.
This textile exhibition was not to show the continuation of the teacher by the students, but to show the creativity of new artists who are using traditional designs with contemporary methods. A teacher can be proud of how his students, these new artists, created their own way and each one with the different personality contributed to the development of this field.
