The Noble Exhibition Catalogue

Türkiye’s worldwide cultural relations organisation, Yunus Emre Institute presents a fascinating collective art exhibition on Traditional Turkish Arts:
The Noble in collaboration with the Traditional Turkish Arts (TTA) Platform. The Exhibition supported by Bagcilar Municipality and Turkish Airlines will take place at The Institute’s gallery in Fitzrovia between the 28th of November and the 21st of December 2022.   

Traditional Turkish arts, which include illumination, calligraphy, paper marbling, miniature, çini and batik, have been a representation of Turkish culture, aesthetics, and history for centuries. Traces of cultural traditions, customs, legends, and beliefs dating back thousands of years can be found behind even the most seemingly simple motif in these arts. Without losing their traditional qualities, each branch of art has continued to develop in accordance with the aesthetic values of the ever-changing art world. In this exhibition, 11 artists, Ahmet Sacit Açıkgözoğlu, Berna Vahapoğlu, Elif Yurdakul, Emsele Bal, Gulnaz Fatima Mahboob, Gülcan Acar, Mürvet Bilgin, Nagihan Seymour, Nimet Koç, Sema Yekeler Yurtseven and Songül Ergün, will be coming together in London to celebrate these traditional arts. 

The Noble Exhibition aims to support emerging and established artists in traditional Turkish arts and to increase public interest and knowledge in the field. The exhibition will provide art lovers with a timeless feast of traditional Turkish arts and crafts, including original works and printworks by masters and talented artists in calligraphy (hüsn-i hat), paper marbling (ebru), illumination (tezhip), miniature, Turkish ceramic (çini) and batik.   

Having organised courses and workshops to promote these branches of art with increasing interest since 2010, Yunus Emre Institute London aims to preserve these art forms for future generations by showcasing some of the liveliest examples in The Noble Exhibition. 

The exhibition will be launched on the 28th of November and will be free to visit until the 21st of December at Yunus Emre Institute London during opening hours, between 10 am and 6 pm.

Most of the exhibited artworks are available to purchase onsite or online via https://traditionalturkisharts.co.uk for the duration of the exhibition. The proceeds from the Exhibition directly support the exhibiting artists and Yunus Emre Institute’s charitable work.
