Explore Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition in Brisbane before it packs up Sunday 9 January.
These are your final weeks to visit Brisbane’s impressive exhibition featuring Michelangelo’s famous frescoes. The awe-inspiring exhibit, Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, is coming to a close in early January but with Christmas and New Year in between, time will fly by and you don’t want to miss out on this experience. It’s the closest you’ll come to these masterpieces without stepping foot inside the Vatican City.
Featuring the iconic frescoes that have decorated the walls of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City for 500 years, the beautiful paintings have since become part of a life-sized display that you can view up close for a truly unique perspective.
Thanks to digital technology and the LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™), a family of companies that specialise in global touring exhibitions, this new stunning spectacle showcases the wonder of one of mankind’s greatest artistic feats.
With special expertise and care, the ceiling paintings from the Sistine Chapel have been recreated by using licensed high-definition photos. A special photo-printing technique has been employed which emulates the look and feel of the original paintings and now they can be viewed in all their glory and displayed so that visitors can see the artworks much closer than the original.
Visitors have been able to engage with the artworks in ways that were never before possible: seeing every detail, every brushstroke and every colour of the artist’s 34 frescoes. Each image is also accompanied by informative signage and audio guides are also 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 can admire the artwork up close, at their own pace and with the ability to capture their experience of the iconic work in photos.
This globally successful exhibition is an innovative and unique interpretation of Michelangelo’s timeless masterpiece which was painted in the artist’s signature fresco style on the freshly plastered walls and ceilings of the Apostolic Palace in Rome, Italy between 1508 and 1512.
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.
