Exhibition is a new theatrical series of events, bringing the world's greatest art exhibitions to cinema screens worldwide. Exhibition will feature the world's foremost upcoming art exhibitions, creatively captured especially for the big screen.
The EXHIBITION series begins with a career-encompassing collection of the works of Edouard Manet on exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in April. Second is a "once-in-a-lifetime" exhibition of the greatest number of Edvard Munch's works ever, co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum in Oslo in June. The third exhibition set for screenings in October takes place at the National Gallery in London where audiences will see a unique perspective on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer. Each Event Film, hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, will go beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
This year, all of 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 already being hailed 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. 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 to have ever lived.
The event film will be going behind-the-scenes to show some of the process of putting the exhibition together -- as well as touring Norway to 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. Norwegian and international guests will also offer their expert insight and knowledge to host Tim Marlow. Munch 150: A superb show and a fantastic event film.

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 and, in doing so we show in detail many other of the artist's great works. The program will suit the wide audience who adore Vermeer's work and who want both to see it in detail and to learn more about this mysterious, fascinating man.
