EXHIBITION: Manet: Portraying Life
April 11 and April 28, 2013
Encore screenings at select locations May 25, 2013
The eagerly awaited exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, Manet: Portraying Life will be captured for cinema screens worldwide. This is the first-ever major exhibition in the UK devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet, spanning his entire career. The exhibition will bring together great works from across Europe, Asia and the USA. Guests will see exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the Royal Academy's exhibition preparation – moments usually hidden from view – and experience a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris.
EXHIBITION: Munch 150
June 27 and July 21, 2013
Encore screenings at select locations September 21, 2013
This year, Norway celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Edvard Munch (1863 - 1944), one of the towering figures of modern art. Munch 150, co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum (both in Oslo), is a once-in-a-lifetime show. Global interest is huge - not least as a result of one of his four paintings of The Scream having recently set a public art auction record of $120 million. 2
Many know Munch as the man who painted The Scream, but his complete works are remarkable and secure his place as one of the greatest artists who ever lived. The event film will go behind-the-scenes to reveal the process of putting the exhibition together, and will provide an in-depth biography of a man who lived from the mid-19th century right through to the German occupation of Norway in the Second World War.
EXHIBITION: Vermeer and Music: The Art of Love and Leisure
Oct. 10 and Nov. 3, 2013
Encore screenings at select locations November 23, 2013
The National Gallery, London, is offering a major exhibition on one of the most startling and fascinating artists of all-time Johannes Vermeer, painter of the Girl with a Pearl Earring. Vermeer painted little more than 30 works that still exist, and the National Gallery has chosen to focus on his art in relation to music. Music was one of the most popular themes of Dutch painting and revealed an enormous amount about the sitter and the society. The Event Film goes beyond the exhibition to tell the entire story of Vermeer's life. The program will suit audiences who already adore Vermeer's work, and those who want to learn more about this mysterious, fascinating man.
