A Question of Taste

Group exhibition

February 23, 2021 – August 8, 2021

The Pera Museum, Meşrutiyet Cad 65, Tepebaşı, Beyoğlu, Istanbul

A Question of Taste is all about kitsch, a German term coined in the 1860s and ’70s for cheap, popular paintings or sketches. In today’s age of diversity, ambiguity and ineffability, does kitsch still have meaning? Should avant-garde and kitsch be partners rather than rivals?

A Question of Taste brings together the work of 13 artists and focuses on the rise of mass culture. It examines concepts of taste and class divisions.

Assembled by the curator and writer Ulya Soley, the show features work by Alex Da Corte & Jayson Musson, Bruno Miguel, Cameron Askin, FAILE, Farah Al Qasimi, Gülsün Karamustafa, Hayırlı Evlat, Miao Ying, Nick Cave, Olia Lialina & Mike Tyka, Pierre et Gilles, Slavs and Tatars and Volkan Aslan.
