Having completed its fifth year of life, İstanbul Modern has decided to reemphasize that the museum is a “home for art” with a new exhibition “New Works, New Horizons”. The exhibition presents viewers with a comprehensive look at the evolution of the modern and contemporary arts produced in Turkey. Texts accompanying the works in the exhibition spaces relate the social, cultural, economic, and political aspects involved in the process of this development. Emphasizing that a work of art is a part of life and exists along with the interactions surrounding it, these texts also describe the historical transformation that art in Turkey underwent in the course of the 20th century.
