Here is The Adventure of Endeavour at this Exhibition
Under the title of "Yesterday-Today-Tomorrow/ The Adventure of Endeavour ", for the exhibition which is about "the adventure of art", an innovative approach has been realized by modern designs and works addressing the world of today and tomorrow. "Yesterday", the first part of the exhibition, which is composed in three sections, offers examples of traditional values that we do not want to deteriorate and which we want to carry forward. In "Today" part, there are designs that are bridges between yesterday and today and where our craftsmen exhibit their mastery. The third and final section of the exhibition, "Tomorrow", offers art lovers the chance to witness the works of ISMEK Fokus Group Design Workshop covering the process and the final products. Each design gives us an idea of what our craftsmen can produce in the future, adhering to tradition.
