Exhibition On Screen - Easter in Art

The story of Christ’s death and resurrection has dominated western culture for the past 2000 years. It is perhaps the most significant historical event of all time, as recounted by the gospels but, equally, as depicted by the greatest artists in history. From the triumphant to the savage, the ethereal to the tactile, some of western civilization’s greatest artworks focus on this pivotal moment.  This beautifully crafted film explores the Easter story as depicted in art, from the time of the early Christians to the present day. Shot on location in Jerusalem, United States and throughout Europe, the film explores the different ways artists have depicted the Easter story through the ages and thus depicts the history of us all.  The greatest story ever painted.  “Anyone who has any interest in art… anyone who has any interest in visual culture… has to be interested in the Christian story.”  Rachel Campbell-Johnston, The Times.  Directed by Phil Grabsky

Exhibition On Screen - Sunflowers

A unique opportunity to see, as never before, this series of spectacular paintings.  Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen.  They are immediately recognisable, but our film goes beyond the surface to explore the many questions and mysteries that surround these works. Why, for example, did Van Gogh choose the exotic sunflower with its long stem and golden crown?  Indeed, when did the flower itself arrive in Europe and how had previous artists reacted to it? What was Van Gogh trying to say with his works and how does that differ from version to version? All is revealed in this fascinating film, which travelled beyond Amsterdam to Tokyo, Philadelphia, London and Munich to film, in incredible high-definition detail, all five of the works.  Directed by David Bickerstaff.  Screening Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 May 2021.  All Tickets $20.00

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to bring back one of its most successful films ever, offering a unique and fascinating exploration of the life and times of Paul Cézanne.  One cannot appreciate 20th-century art without understanding the significance and genius of Paul Cézanne.  Filmed on location at the National Portrait Gallery London, National Gallery of Art Washington, and Musée d’Orsay Paris, this film features interviews with curators and experts, and correspondence from the artist himself, taking us beyond Cézanne’s portraits to the places he lived and worked, and sheds light on an artist who is perhaps the least known of all the impressionists – until now.

Exhibition On Screen - Lucian Freud: A Self Portrait

For the first time in history the Royal Academy of Arts in London, in collaboration with the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, is bringing together Lucian Freud’s self-portraits.  The exhibition will display more than 50 paintings, prints and drawings in which this modern master of British art turned his unflinching eye firmly on himself. One of the most celebrated painters of our time, Lucian Freud is also one of very few 20th-century artists who portrayed themselves with such consistency.  Spanning nearly seven decades his self-portraits give a fascinating insight into both his psyche and his development as a painter, from his earliest portrait painted in 1939 to the final one executed 64 years later. When seen together, his portraits represent an engrossing study into the dynamic of ageing and the process of self-representation. This intensely compelling exhibition creates a unique opportunity for EXHIBITION ON SCREEN to reveal the life’s work of a master in one show.  Directed by David Bickerstaff.
Screening Saturday 11 & Sunday 12 September 2021.  All Tickets $20.00
