16th Century Genius Matrakçı Nasuh


United States of America witness the Ottoman expeditions by the miniatures of the 16th Century Genius Matrakçı Nasuh.



The “16th Century Genius Matrakçı Nasuh” project, designed by “İKASD İstanbul Intercultural Art Dialogues Association” under the aegis of T.R. Presidency, is in the DCA Museum, Maryland as hosted by the Washington Embassy of the Republic of Turkey and T.R. Religious Affairs Administration.


The “16th Century Genius Matrakçı Nasuh” exhibition, designed by İKASD İstanbul Intercultural Art Dialogues Association under the aegis of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey, is being offered to the art-lovers in Washington DC during October 6 / 13, 2017 following Sarajevo, Belgrade, 2015 G20 Antalya summit , Istanbul, Wien, Tokyo, Paris and Rome.


The “Matraki an Ottoman Star” documentary film prepared within the scope of the project will be screened in Washington DC on October 4, 2017 for the first time, as hosted by Mr. Serdar Kılıç, Washington Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey.


41 works in total narrate our history and art to the world in the project exhibition curated by Beste Gürsu, where a selection from the east and west expedition city maps in Matrakçı Nasuh's works titled “Beyan-I Menazil Sefer-I Irakeyn” and “Tarih-I Feth-I Şikloş Estergon ve İstol Belgrad” are exactly transferred onto tile panels by 12 female artists under the leadership of Muralist Sevim Ersoy, a selection from Matrakçı’s verses are transferred into diwani scripts, and several of his qualifications are transferred onto canvas with a modern interpretation.


While the qualifications of Nasuh, who is one of the hidden geniuses of our history, are narrated in different disciplines of art, the viewer will be able to follow the routes of the expeditions together with Matrakçı through his miniatures, and find the opportunity to explore the Ottoman Empire of the 16th Century both in the chronological and historical sense with this exhibition.
