Having launched for art lovers a 3D version of all the twenty exhibitions it has held so far since 2011 on its website, the Arkas Art Center now offers a 3D tour of the “Picasso: The Art of Spectacle Exhibition” for those who have missed it or wish to see it again. Arkas Art Center’s website now features the entire works of Picasso, the art genius of the 20th century, inspired by his fascination with the world of show business.
The Arkas Art Center has hosted a total of 20 exhibitions covering many different concepts from “Post-Impressionism in the Arkas Collection”, “This Side of the Aegean From a Westerner’s Brush”, “Soldier Painters”, “Testimonies of Anatolian Antiquity”, “Anatolian Travels”, “Victor Vasarely”, “Colour Light Vibration” to “1001 Nights” and now, following its latest exhibition, it is inviting all art lovers to get behind their laptops and treat themselves to a marvellous 360 degrees virtual tour.
The “Picasso: The Art of Spectacle Exhibition”, highly acknowledged for being the first and only free Picasso exhibition, can also be viewed with a 3D virtual reality tour for free.
Thanks to the Virtual Museum on the web site of the Arkas Art Center, whose mission it is to endear art to people of all ages, art enthusiasts now have the opportunity to view previous exhibitions. Using the 360-degree 3D virtual tour, everyone can visit the exhibitions as if they are physically at the Centre and can view the works of art of many important artists.
An Exhibition that Took Izmir by the Storm
Art lovers flocked to the Picasso: The Art of Spectacle exhibition, which opened on September 18 at the Arkas Art Center, seeing the largest number of visitors in Izmir’s history in just three and a half months, seen by 160 thousand people until January 5, 2010 .
Dedicated to Picasso’s passion for performing arts, a powerful influence that shaped his whole life, the exhibition brings to light for the first time an entirely different side of Picasso, laying bare his colourful personality, as well as his works inspired by the world of show business. Displaying 83 pieces of artwork from the Picasso National Museum, Fondation Julio Gonzalez, Opera Garnier and the Kontaxopoulos-Prokopchuk Collection in Brussels, the exhibition sheds light on how performing arts influenced Picasso’s art through the display of many of the artist’s showbiz-themed paintings, costume designs, sketches, and sculptures, as well as the photos of his life.
