Surface and Beyond

Curator: Heinz Peter Schwerfel

Surface and Beyond, the inaugural group exhibition of Dirimart Dolapdere, May 26-July 30 2016, presented well-known international and Turkish contemporary artists. All artworks, be it painting, sculpture, or film, invite the viewer on a visual journey beyond the surface. Whereas the concept of the ‘exposed surface’ is investigated from various perspectives, the works feature political, social, and religious subtexts beneath their surface.
