Evliyagil Museum Collection includes artworks from a period of approximately 70 years, most of which extend from the 1950s to the present. The collection, which consists of works by artists who produced in the changing technical and narrative languages of modern/contemporary art such as painting, sculpture, pattern/drawing, print, installation, and video, makes the major trends and debates in Turkish art visible. The line of the collection extends to the 2000s and consists of artists whose birth was in the Ottoman Empire and the Republic Period, youth in World War II, adulthood in the libertarian period of the post-war era and a younger generation of artists who produce works today. In the exhibition, 87 works of 38 artists from the museum collection were brought together, side by side, mixed, without considering any chronology.
