13 April 2017 – Thursdays are free admission days at Istanbul Modern Art Museum and I made a use of it today. Most of my time in the museum was spent taking photos and also seeing Roger Ballen: Retrospective, which was luckily hosted down at the much less crowded basement floor. His work (“unsettling portraits” as called in one of the reviews) reminded me of Diana Arbus but I just read that the attempt to establish a link between Roger Ballen and Diane Arbus is just an easy approach. The exhibit will be open until 4 June 2017.
