Opening its very first exhibition in May 1984, Galeri Nev is celebrating its twenty fifth anniversary this May. Having dedicated its past anniversaries to comprehensive exhibitions of the history of the gallery itself and of the three generations it represents, this time Nev choses to leave the past behind and look to the future. The twenty fifth anniversary exhibition to be opened at Galeri Nev on the evening of May 15, consists mainly of the works by young artists born in the beginning of the 1980’s, marking the inception of the gallery. Nev Gereration thus sets out to discover a new generation that will be articulated to the previous ones. Works gathered under the caption of “In Search of Lost Reality” also raise many questions as to the art of the present day and point out to art's pursuit of reality at a time when reality has been lost. NevGeneration includes the following artists: Barış Sarıbaş, Birtan Oran, Burcu Perçin, Ercan Akın, Ferhat Özgür, Hayal İncedoğan, Karolin Fişekçi, Lale Delibaş, Mehmet Ali Uysal, Murat Akagündüz, Mustafa Duymaz, Mustafa Karasu, Osman Kerkütlü, Şebnem Dönmez, Semra Karahan and Volkan Diyaroğlu.
