The Arkın Rodin Collection, the largest known Auguste Rodin collection in the Eastern Mediterranean, was going to meet with the audience on April 12, 2022, at Antalya Culture and Art, with the exhibition “Rodin, the Sculptor of Passion – A Selection from the Private Collection of Erbil Arkın“. Unfortunately, the exhibition has been postponed to a later date due to technical and bureaucratic issues.
Organized on the occasion of the 140th anniversary of Antalya Chamber of Commerce and Industry, in cooperation with the Arkın University of Creative Arts and Design (ARUCAD), The Arkın Rodin Collection Gallery and Antalya Culture and Art, and with the support of the T.R. Ministry of Culture and Tourism, a selection from the Rodin Collection, shared with art lovers for the first time in 2017, due to the opening of ARUCAD, by the founder of the university Erbil Arkın, will be exhibited.
The selection, which includes iconic works such as The Kiss, Eternal Spring and The Falling Man by the French sculptor Rodin, known as the pioneer of modern sculpture, will bring the audience together with the passionate universe of Rodin, who carried the deep-rooted sculpture tradition of European art from the Romanticism of the 19th century to the 20th century and the great artistic adventure of the modern age.
