The 'Turks' exhibition
at the Royal Academy of Arts documents a 1000-year-long
venture in a rare assemblage of objects that bear
witness to its history.
At its 300-year-old home in Burlington House on Piccadilly, one of London's oldest and swankiest avenues, the Royal Academy of Arts, one of England's and the world's most respected art institutions, is draped nowadays with banners inscribed 'Turks'. They announce an exhibition, 'Turks: A Journey of a Thousand Years, 600-1600', which opened on 22 January. Through the objects on display and the many activities on offer, this exhibition, which has been widely acclaimed in both the Turkish and the international press from the day it opened, provides the best answer to the question "Who are these Turks?".
FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD
The 'Turks' exhibition is being organized with logistical and planning support from the Istanbul Art and Culture Foundation.
