More art around Istanbul
During the week of Contemporary Istanbul - CI, Dirimart held two exhibitions at both their galleries, while also taking part in CI with an impressive booth.
The first was for the world renowned Fahrilnissa Zeid’s Ode to Passion at their Dolapdere showroom, which I sadly missed.
The second was The Sweetness of Lemons by Nissa Raad, the granddaughter of Fahrilnissa Zeid, and a lovely upcoming artist, with a delightful persona, and a quest to make her own name for herself in todays art world. This opening show I was able to attend, along with some of my CI guests. The vibrant colors and Happy, bubbly shapes were a delight to take in, and definitely left one with that sweet and zesty sensation suggested by the title of the exhibition. A change from her earlier neighborhood scenes with birds and stacked houses, this was a move to a more abstract look maybe. Loved it all the same!
