Villa del Arte Opens New Gallery at Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum

Villa del Arte is thrilled to announce our new art gallery at the luxurious Mandarin Oriental in Bodrum, Türkiye. From June to October 2024, we will transform the resort’s landscape with captivating installations and exhibitions by 10 painters, 10 sculptors, and 8 mixed media artists from around the globe.

After our long and successful history at Contemporary Istanbul, expanding to Bodrum feels like the natural next step. Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum, recently named the best resort in Türkiye, is a beloved destination for many of our Turkish collectors, making it the perfect setting for our inaugural season.

Our gallery will feature a meticulously curated, ever-changing showcase of multidisciplinary art, emphasizing interaction between artists and guests. Visitors can look forward to insightful visits, “Meet the Artist” presentations every two weeks, cocktail receptions, and engaging Q&A sessions.

The season kicks off with our gallery opening on May 31st, 2024, coinciding with the 6th edition of ALEM Art Weekend—a celebration designed to bring together art enthusiasts, artists, and collectors, and an exclusive event on Saturday, June 1st, featuring presentations by renowned artists Ron Mills-Pinyas, Christiaan Lieverse, Willem van Weeghel and Maria Paola Coda, offering a unique opportunity to engage in dialogue and gain insights into their work.

Villa del Arte invites you to immerse yourself in this extraordinary artistic experience at Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum. The gallery will be open to the public on June 3rd until October, 2024. We are excited to bring our high-end vision to this stunning location and already look forward to returning for the 2025 season.
