Baku/11.07.17/Turan: The British Council in partnership with CoolConnections and Park Cinema is delighted to announce the launch of an exciting new programme: Exhibition on Screen.
Exhibition on Screen will bring blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries around the world to Azerbaijani cinema in stunning high definition, starting from July 2017.
Produced by award-winning British arts documentary maker Phil Grabsky, Exhibition on Screen is a unique opportunity that brings the world's finest galleries, exhibitions and artists to a growing international audience, in a programme which has given viewers, for the first time ever, a front row seat to the world"s greatest art in high definition on the big screen.
The programme kicks off with seven remarkable feature-length documentary films in Baku. Each film will bring masterpieces to audiences via high-tech digital cinema technology. The films will not just cover the paintings in the exhibition, but will ask and answer questions such as: What lies behind the exhibition creatively and technically? What does this particular collection of paintings and objects reveal about the artist, or the particular historical period? What do we learn about the institution? The Azerbaijan audiences will discover the stories behind many iconic works of art in this eye-opening documentary series.
The opening film of the cinema season will be the Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse, and it will be screened on 16 July at 13:00, at Park Cinema at Flame towers (cinema hall 3). From the exhibition walls to the wonder and beauty of artists" gardens like Giverny and Seebüll, the film takes a magical journey to discover how different contemporaries of Monet built and cultivated modern gardens to explore expressive motifs, abstract colour, decorative design and utopian ideas. For lovers of art or lovers of gardens, this is a wonderful film.
The venues will be Park cinema (cinema hall 3) at Flame Towers. Tickets cost 9 AZN and are available online and at all box offices of Park Bulvar and Flame Towers.
