Come On!

Franz Ackermann

September 14, 2017 – October 15, 2017

Dirimart Dolapdere, Irmak Caddesi 1–9, Dolapdere

The brightly-coloured energetic paintings of German artist Franz Ackermann hide a darkness under their candy-hued surfaces. The artist delves into the tension between the two faces of tourism, from the appeal of international travel and consumption culture to the cultural degradation and damage left behind. This set of paintings deals with those themes of travel, tourism, globalization and urban life through small-scale watercolours, large-scale oil paintings and vast murals that transform cities ranging from Miami to Istanbul to Mumbai.
