This is a series of five cinema events showcasing the world’s greatest art collections and blockbuster exhibitions. Exhibition On Screen offers audiences around the world a private, guided tour of these exhibitions and the opportunity to immerse themselves in art via high definition. In addition to the exhibitions the films include interviews with art experts, behind the scene access, collaborations with other artists (such as the dance and music segments in the Matisse film) and biographical features. Blockbuster exhibitions around the world often sell out and have limited touring schedules so for many people EOS is the only opportunity to see them. EOS offers a more intimate and comfortable viewing experience without the hassle of queues and crowds.
We have 10 sets of tickets available that includes the 4 performances at Cinemark at Market Street.
Rembrandt From the National Gallery, London & Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam
Every Rembrandt exhibition is eagerly anticipated, but this major new show, focused on the final years of his life and hosted by London’s National Gallery and Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum, is the biggest in many years. Given exclusive and privileged access by both galleries, the film documents this extraordinary show and interweaves Rembrandt’s life story with behind the scenes preparations at both institutions. For many, this is the greatest artist that ever lived—this film will take a close look at the man behind such acclaim. Run time 85 minutes.
Vincent Van Gogh From the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
Enjoying complete and unprecedented access to the treasures of Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum, this is a brilliant new film about one of the world’s favorite artists, marking both a major re-showing of the gallery’s collection and a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death. Experience the wonder of seeing these masterpieces on the big screen while specially invited guests, including world renown curators and art historians, offer their interpretations and explanations of his work. With exclusive new research revealing incredible recent discoveries, the Van Gogh Museum has helped craft a cinema experience like no other. Not to be missed. Run time 90 minutes.
Girl With the Pearl Earring, Vermeer From the Mauritshuis, the Netherlands:
After two years on a blockbuster world tour, the ‘Girl With the Pearl Earring’ has returned home to the much-loved Mauritshuis gallery in The Hague, which has just completed extensive renovations. With huge queues lining up for a glimpse of her enigmatic beauty and nearly 1.2 million visitors at its stop in Japan, the enduring appeal of this masterpiece is indisputable. The beautifully filmed documentary goes in pursuit of the many unresolved riddles surrounding the extraordinary painting and its mysterious creator, Vermeer. Who was this girl? Why and how was it painted? Why is it so revered? Run time 85 minutes.
The Impressionists From Various Collections:
They are the world’s most popular artists. The works of Cezanne, Monet, Degas and their compatriots fetch tens of millions of dollars. But just who were they really? Why and how did they paint? What lies behind their enduring appeal?
To help answer these questions, the film has secured unique access to a major new exhibition focusing on the 19th century Parisian art collector Paul Durand-Ruel, the outspoken champion of Impressionism. This eagerly anticipated exhibition is perhaps the most comprehensive ever held about the Impressionists. Duran-Ruel’s brave decision to exhibit the Impressionists in New York in 1886 introduced enlightened, wealthy Americans to modern French painting. In doing so, he ot only filled great American galleries with Impressionist masterworks, but also kept Impressionism alive at a time when it faced complete failure. This energetic and revealing film will tell his remarkable story along with that of the Impressionists themselves. Run time 90 minutes.
