Inaugurated on June 8, 2005, Pera Museum is a private museum founded by the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation. Since its inauguration, Pera Museum has collaborated annually with national and international art and education institutions to hold exhibitions that support young artists. All of the Museum’s exhibitions are accompanied by books, catalogues, audio-visual events, and education programs. Parallel to its seasonal programs and events, Pera Film offers visitors a wide range of screenings that extend from classics and independent movies to animated films and documentaries. Pera Film also hosts special shows that directly correlate with the themes of temporary exhibitions.
