Re/Framing Louis Kahn 
Photographs by Cemal Emden—Drawings and Paintings
07 December 2017—04 March 2018

From the Pera Museum’s website:

“The exhibition Re/Framing Louis Kahn: Photographs by Cemal Emden—Drawings and Paintings focuses on the architectural and artistic works of Louis I. Kahn—architect, thinker, artist, and an ‘architectural guru’ who is considered among the leading figures of 20th century architecture. Curated by Müge Cengizkan, the exhibition brings together drawings and photographs of architectural works from Pennsylvania, where Kahn lived, worked, and lectured—to Dacca and Ahmedabad, as well as his paintings and unique interviews. The exhibition’s focus is based on photographs that reframe Kahn’s buildings through themes such as ‘constructing the ground’ and ‘kneading the program.’ It also offers new insights into Kahn’s ideas through his visionary writings, which have been translated into Turkish for the first time. The exhibition features video interviews with Middle Eastern Technical University graduate architects and instructors who had been Kahn’s students in the States. For this first Louis I. Kahn exhibition in Turkey, the selection includes Kahn’s charcoal and color drawings and paintings as well as his own writings and books in an attempt to frame his intricate personality.”
