The exhibition opens on April 27 at Nâzım Hikmet Culture House and Meteor Balat Culture House of Nilüfer Municipality.

The exhibition, which will be open until July 28, brings together Orhan Taylan's two periods when he was directly involved with social opposition.

The exhibition, which brings together the artist's Travel Paintings, most of which he painted in 2013, and posters, photographs, drawings and writings from the period when he worked with DİSK, brings a selection from the DİSK and SALT archives to Bursa, as well as the family archive.

Orhan Taylan, the creator of the iconic posters of the May 1 celebrations, was inspired by many movements and disciplines rather than being stuck in any one movement.
