Istanbul: Istanbul Modern, 2015. Softcover. VG. Colorful card wraps with red/black lettering on red/yellow spine. 319 pp. with color and bw images throughout. Catalogue of 193 works by 109 artists from the collection of the Istanbul Modern Muvesi/Museum. Published in Turkish and English, the collection catalogue for "Artists in Their Time" presents, along with texts on artists and their works, two articles by Ahu Antmen, art historian and critic, and Handan nci, literary historian and expert on Ahmet Hamdi Tanp nar. Through the context of time, Antmen focuses on modernization in Turkey, and interaction between generations and their coming to terms with one another. nci, on the other hand, presents a biographical account of Tanp nar with references to the notion of time as reflected in the author's work. Ahmet Hamdi Tanp nar (1901-1962) was one of Turkey's foremost intellectual and literary figures. "Artists in Their Time" highlights how artists experience their own times, feel anxious and frustrated that time emerges from the past and flows into the future, and form bonds between their own internal time and that of others. The exhibition also presents a base for discussing the place of art in transience and change and the transformation of art. "Artists in Their Time" offers a roadmap for understanding artists' intertemporal, existential journey through time as conceptualized in Tanp nar's work. In an age when we are able to imagine a variety of times simultaneously, the exhibition also reminds us of the comprehensive breadth of Tanp nar's views. - adapted from the museum's web site.
