The exhbition “Shadows and Truth” consists of a selection of works that the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey added from 1990 to his art collection with the intention of giving a new approach in an era in which is criticized with hardness Eurocentrism, the Western hegemony and modernity. Selection responds to a geographic, multicultural approach and includes works by a group of other artists, conducted mainly during the 1980s and 1990s, but covering ideologies and policies that go back until the 1950s. Instead of displaying the art of today, this exhibition visualizes the spirit of a process. It focuses on the truth and the history of modern art in another culture, a culture that has been left in the shade and is situated in geographies for which is that there is no history, geographies that are kept out of the time and where it is believed that the custom and tradition are perpetuated unchanged.

“Shadows and Truth” presents works of artists who, in general, want to learn and explore the tradition related to Ottoman and Islamic culture, who want to carry out republican modernization and, at the same time, they want to investigate and give the meaning to the foundations of modernity and historical continuity which has taken a new form.
