LISBON MEMORIES FROM ANOTHER CITY
Sakıp Sabancı Museum
14 May 2009 - 14 July 2009


Sabancı University Sakıp Sabancı Museum (SSM), is hosting the exhibition titled "LISBON Memories from Another City", between 14 May - 14 July 2009. Organized in collaboration with Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Portugal, the exhibition introduces the city of Lisbon, a city which is both far and close to us, through the works of major Portuguese painters that lived in a period between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

"LISBON Memories from Another City" was inspired by the exhibition titled "Evocations, Passages, Atmosphere: Paintings from the Sakıp Sabancı Museum Istanbul" realized by SSM and Calouste Culbenkian Foundation in Portugal in 2007. The paintings of this exhibition, that were portraying the views of the Bosphorus and the sea shore, and the scenes from Istanbul's daily life corroborated the fact that Istanbul and Lisbon share lots of common points even if they are situated at the east and west edges of the European continent. The exhibition titled "LISBON Memories from Another City" organized due to the official visit of Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva to Turkey, delineates the analogies between Istanbul and Lisbon, cities which are considered as vital points for the meeting of cultures, religions, civilizations and continents.
