The artist in his solo show, transforms these cities, ranging from Miami to Istanbul to Mumbai, by analyzing the dramatic changes they undergo and translating his mental experiences of them.


Franz Ackermann is known for his passionate paintings and installations dealing with themes of travel, tourism, globalization, and urban life, is bringing together landscapes from cities that he spent extensive periods of time during the last three years at Dirimart Dolapdere. The artist transforms these cities into small-scale watercolors, large-scale oil paintings, and vast murals by thus becoming part of urban textures, he opens up areas to construct new spaces for himself. Ackermann describes this new space that is woven by images void of people as public space, inviting viewers in to complement the cities he painted to become a fundamental element of the exhibition and to reiterate the strong connection between the gallery space and the outside.
