Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is coming our way and when it arrives at Emporium, visitors will be able to envelop themselves in the iconic frescoes without stepping a foot out of Melbourne. Opening on January 22, the exhibition will allow visitors to explore up close the stunning details of one of the world’s greatest works of art from never-before-seen perspectives.
With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been reproduced by using licensed high-definition photos. Then a special photo-printing technique that emulates the look and feel of the original paintings has been employed to recreate the Sistine Chapel experience. The famous frescoes have been reproduced in all their glory to be displayed just feet away from guests.
In other words, you’ll be able to see the artworks much closer than the original 34 frescoes. And aside from seeing every detail, every brushstroke and every colour used, each image will also be accompanied by informative signage and audio guides will also be available for an even more in-depth experience.
Whether visitors have already been to the Sistine Chapel or not, everyone at Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition will be able to admire the artwork up close, at their own pace and with the ability to capture their experience of the iconic work in photos.
This bewildering display, which comes our way thanks to digital technology and the LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™)—a family of companies that specialise in global touring exhibitions—will showcase the awe and wonder of the one of mankind’s most admired and cherished artistic feats. It’s a not to be missed experience and one that complements a visit to the the Vatican City and the feeling of experiencing the Sistine Chapel in person.
This globally successful exhibition, which has toured cities in North America and Europe already, is an innovative and unique interpretation of Michelangelo’s timeless masterpiece. Painted in the artist’s signature fresco style on the freshly plastered walls and ceilings of the Apostolic Palace in Rome between 1508 and 1512, it can now be seen without having to catch a flight to Italy.
Michelangelo completed his work between 1535 and 1541, and visitors can marvel at it today with this innovative and cutting-edge interpretation of one of the world’s most famous interior paintings.
