In 2009, Nev Gallery opened its first exhibition of NEVNESİL series with 25-year-old artists in celebration of its 25th anniversary; and now Nev prepares to respond / reciprocate / refer to these exhibitions with NEVNADİR. Just like NEVNESİL, NEVNADİR (RARE WORKS) is to be repeated every other year, and the first of the series will open on 4th of May. NEVNADİR will host rare works of artists Nev regularly represents such as Mübin Orhon, Erol Akyavaş, Alev Ebüzziya; works specially created or spared for this exhibition from artists that Nev worked with in the past such as Yüksel Arslan, Burhan Doğançay, İpek Düben, Kemal Önsoy; in addition to the works of exceptional guests such as Candeğer Furtun, Ramazan Bayrakoğlu and Yaşam Şaşmazer, articulated to Nev’s thesis on the history of art in Turkey, as well as the gallery’s own history. As such, Nev Gallery exhibits an “homage” not only to its institutional milestones, but also to its individual memories and relationships. From the point of view of the audience, NEVNADİR firstly presents the unknown works of very well known artists; the singularity of the works being based on date, size, material or technicality. In addition, the exhibition hosts different generations, inviting the viewer to compare and to explore their common ideas an languages, and trace a “zeitgeist”. By combining Erol Akyavaş with Seyhun Topuz, Şahin Kaygun with Nazif Topçuoğlu, Abidin Elderoğlu with İnci Eviner, NEVNADİR also proves that competency or simply rarity is sufficient to bind works and generations together.
