This weekend, I visited the  Contemporary Chinese Art exhibition called Transformation: A view on Chinese Contemporary Art  at Istanbul Modern Museum  featuring the 15 artists from China. I think we as Istanbullers are lucky to have a chance of viewing these wonderful Art exhibition as part of the celebrations of 2012 Chinese Cultural year in Turkey until the 25th of October.  By this chance, I strongly suggest to people who are wondering about the development of Chinese Art  interpreted by the traditional culture not to miss this exhibition. So here my brief views about what I saw and what I conceive this sunday at the show…

I think  the exhibition has an impressive context by the  way its is reflecting  the transitional consciousness of Chinese heritage, philosophy, social psychology, ideology integration with today’ s China based on the views of recent Chinese artists. To me, China is  one of the most stunning country in the world by its rich culture, hardworking personalities, creative, artistic, crafting skills and its advanced technology. This exhibition was almost a brief summary of  these rich content of the culture and the reflection for the future vision of  the land. The inner worlds of the artists’ work in this exhibition are imaging the local background based on their country however being transformed in an incredible rich platform by using  the advanced technological methods of  today’ s globalized world. Nevertheless, it recalls thoughts of  no globalization could be strong without based on a strong localization. The real difference in the fast paced world can only be created as a nation if only the transition formed by the sociological memory and the cultural history.

So, I congratulate the curator of the show Sun Feng who could express the inner projections of today’ s Chinese artists of  external circumstances successfully and thanks to Istanbul Modern to bring us the opportunity of  visiting the gallery by prsenting these great art works at their museum. According to information given on Istanbul Modern’ s web site, they will organize an exhibition in Shangai on 2013 for the celebrations of the 40th year diplomatic relations between Turkey and China. I m hoping to be there for this event…
