Turkish Consul General Korhan Kemik officiated the “FAR and NEAR: Contemporary Art Exhibition by Turkish Artists” at Hong Kong City Hall on 18 October. Curated by Turkish art critic İbrahim Karaoğlu, the exhibition features 40 masterpieces by Turkish artists Onay Akbaş, Habip Aydoğdu, Prof Devrim Erbil, Yalçın Gökçebağ, Nihat Kahraman, Prof Hayati Misman, Prof Hasan Pekmezci and Metin Yurdanur.

The title of the exhibition ‘Far / Near’ emphasises the economic and cultural interactions between the two civilisations that have remained intact despite a period of migrations that saw Turkish people travelling westward to Anatolia.

The exhibition will run until 2 November.
