- What’s On
Pera Museum presents a series of online talks as part of “Impossible Homecoming”, a retrospective exhibition of artist and poet Etel Adnan, whose life spanned nearly a century. In the first event, those who are closest to her will talk about Etel Adnan’s life, work and cities.
The co-curator of the exhibition and Etel Adnan’s companion, artist Simone Fattal, her gallerist and friend Jean Frémon, and Lamia Joreige, an artist friend with whom Adnan collaborates occasionally will have a conversation about the Etel they know with the moderation of the co-curator Serhan Ada. The three speakers who all live in Paris and take part in her everyday life will provide an insight into Etel Adnan’s oeuvre through her life, the cities she lived in: Beirut, Paris, San Francisco (but also Skopelos, Izmir…), people, mountains, sea, fog, thoughts etc.
