EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: LEONARDO: THE WORKS
TUESDAY, JANUARY 31, 2023 AT 6:30
Leonardo da Vinci is acclaimed as the world’s favorite artist. Many TV shows and feature films have showcased this extraordinary genius but often not examined closely enough is the most crucial element of all: his art. Leonardo’s peerless paintings and drawings will be the focus of Leonardo The Works, as EXHIBITION ON SCREEN presents every single attributed painting, in Ultra HD quality, never seen before on the big screen.

Key works include The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, Ginevra de’ Benci, Madonna Litta, Virgin of the Rocks, and more than a dozen others. This film also looks afresh at Leonardo’s life - his inventiveness, his sculptural skills, his military foresight and his ability to navigate the treacherous politics of the day - through the prism of his art.

This film was released in October 2019 on the 500th anniversary of his death, and is the definitive film about Leonardo: the first to truly tell the whole story.

Directed by Phil Grabsky. Running time 85 minutes.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: MARY CASSATT: PAINTING THE MODERN WOMAN
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8, 2023 AT 6:30
Mary Cassatt made a career painting the lives of the women around her. Her radical images showed them as intellectual, feminine and real, which was a major shift in the way women appeared in art.

Presenting her astonishing prints, pastels and paintings, this film introduces us to the often- overlooked Impressionist whose own career was as full of contradiction as the women she painted.

She printed, sketched, and painted dozens of images of mothers and children yet she never married or had children herself. She was a classically trained artist but chose to join a group of Parisian radicals – the Impressionists – a movement that transformed the language of art.

The world’s most eminent Cassatt curators and scholars help tell this riveting tale of great social and cultural change; a time when women were fighting for their rights and the language of art was completely re-written. Mary Cassatt and her modern women were at the heart of it all.

Directed by Ali Ray. Running time 93 minutes.

No passes or value cards accepted. Tickets are $14.00 and may be purchased at the Avon Cinema box office starting 3 weeks before the event.

EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: TOKYO STORIES
TUESDAY, MAY 23, 2023 AT 6:30
A thrilling encounter with one of the world’s great art capitals.

Based on a major exhibition at the Ashmolean in Oxford, Tokyo Stories spans 400 years of incredibly dynamic art – ranging from the delicate woodblock prints of Hokusai and Hiroshige, to Pop Art posters, contemporary photography, Manga, film, and brand-new artworks that were created on the streets.

The exhibition was a smash-hit five-star success and brought a younger and more diverse audience to the museum. The film uses the exhibition as a launchpad to travel to Tokyo itself, and explore the art and artists of the city more fully.

A beautifully illustrated and richly detailed film, looking at a city which has undergone constant destruction and renewal over its 400-year history, resulting in one of the most vibrant and interesting cities on the planet...

“Tokyo has a powerful engine that just doesn’t stop. There is an energy, a particular floating power in Tokyo. Whatever happens, this city gets rebuilt again and continues to move forwards.” -Machida Kumi
