Turkish Film Poster Art Exhibit, 2011 MESA Conference
This exhibit showcased rare, yet highly sought-after, hand-drawn film posters from the collection of Stanford Libraries and Academic Information Resources. Dating back to the early 1950s, the posters highlighted foreign adaptations and imitations, Western and Eastern influence, and representations of gender, minority, or majority. The exhibit was co-sponsored by the Mediterranean Studies Forum, the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies, Stanford Institute for Creativity and the Arts, and Stanford Libraries and Academic Information Resources. Programming was partially made possible by the support of the Turkish Cultural Foundation, Stanford Division of Literatures, Cultures and Languages, and Stanford Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies.
