“Contemporary Blue-and-White: Iznik Ceramic by Mehmet Gürsoy and Nida Olçar” exhibits some forty Turkish ceramics by two well-known and award-winning contemporary potters. Both artists work in a traditional, yet also contemporary Iznic style. Mehmet Gürsoy was recognised as a UNESCO Living Human Treasure in 2010, while Nida Olçar, a much younger artist, continues the renowned workshop and ceramic style of her late father Sıtkı Olçar who was awarded the same prestigious UNESCO award in 2008.
