Images of Our Time: Works from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo

We are very pleased to inform you that from September 04 to November 01, 2015 the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo, in collaboration with Pera Museum, Istanbul, will present the exhibition “Images of Our Time”. The exhibition brings together works in various media created by students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo.

Reflective of the contemporary art scene in Sarajevo, this exhibition presents the works of eighty students, undergraduate and graduate, from all departments of the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo (Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Art Education, Graphic Design, Product Design). The diversity of their exploration can be observed through socially engaged art; analysis and interpretation of the space and time we live and act in and examinations of identity; elements of tradition in contemporary contexts; and the space of art as a space of freedom, the imagination, play and spirituality.


The exhibition celebrates  young artists from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo and strives to bring a breath of freshness and youth from the Sarajevo art scene into Pera Museum in Istanbul, Turkey. The press conference and opening of the exhibition will be held on September 03.


The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Pera Museum, Istanbul, supported by IKASD and with the contribution of the Turkish Embassy in Sarajevo.


Curator: Prof dr Aida Abadžić Hodžić
