Tickets are on sale to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, which has opened at The Naval Store in Fremantle. The fascinating exhibition has already wowed crowds around the world in cities like Madrid, Chicago, Shanghai, Berlin and Vienna before making its way to Australia. It’s now our turn to be looking up to the heavens and admiring the 34 frescoes as if we were standing on the marbled floor of the hallowed hall itself.
Michelangelo’s work has been recreated using commissioned high-definition photographs as well as a state-of-the-art photo-printing technique that captures every aspect, colour and detail of the elysian and biblical scenes. From the flowing robes to the outstretched hands of Noah and the prophets, the angels and cherubs in the clouds to images of the Creation and the Fall, they have all been encapsulated in this mesmerising exhibition.
Grab tickets now and be amazed by one of history’s greatest works of art.
Thanks to astonishing digital technology and the brains of LA-based SEE Global Entertainment (SEE™), a family of companies that specialise in global touring exhibitions, we will be enamoured by the awe and wonder of one of mankind’s greatest artistic feats without jetting off to Italy—just the ceiling of the extraordinary work in the Vatican City covers a staggering 40 x 13 metres.
The stunning Renaissance masterpiece, while obviously a must-see for art lovers, is difficult to appreciate when in Rome. Pushy crowds, militant security guards and hard-to-see pieces can make the traditional experience underwhelming. Visitors to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition at the large and historic The Naval Store venue will not have any of these issues when taking in the life-size reproductions in all their intended glory.
The intricately painted details of the frescoes commissioned by Pope Julius II in 1508 pop right before your very eyes and appear as if you could very well have been standing on the scaffolding next to Michelangelo himself. They are also accompanied by informative signage that details the artistic mastery and inspiration behind his brilliant works. But, if that’s not enough, audio guides are also available to give visitors a deeper dive into the works of art.
A step into Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is to immerse yourself in the work of the master artist. It might not be the Sistine Chapel itself but for many of us, it’s the best we can get. And, for others, it’s the perfect addition to a trip to the Vatican City where they’ll now be able to marvel at every section in incredible clarity—they’ll also be able to take photos.
Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition is now open at The Naval Store on the corner of Canning Highway and Queen Victoria Street.
