The retrospective »Fahrelnissa Zeid« introduces one of Turkey’s most important pioneering modernists to an international audience. The artist, who was born in 1901 on an island off the coast of Istanbul into an upper-class, intellectual family and died in 1991 in Amman, Jordan, was a cosmopolite throughout her life. Her painting, which has been rediscovered beyond Turkey and Jordan in recent years at biennials and international exhibitions, synthesizes a wide range of influences, which relate to her multicultural and very eventful life. A retrospective conceived by Tate Modern in London that is now on view at the Deutsche Bank KunstHalle shows the wide spectrum of her oeuvre for the first time, encompassing works and documents spanning eight decades.
