Films to bring art exhibits to cinemas worldwide
LONDON (AP) - Art exhibitions abroad are coming to a cinema near you.
Art lovers who can't travel to London to see Edouard Manet's portraits at the Royal Academy of Arts will now be able to watch a film about the show at movie theaters from Argentina to India.
Arts documentary maker Phil Grabsky, who made the film, said Wednesday the initiative will let global audiences experience art from some of the world's best galleries.
The movies will show the paintings and be narrated by experts who guide audiences through the exhibitions.
The film on the Manet show will be shown from April in almost 450 cinemas in the U.S. It will be followed by films on an Oslo show on Edvard Munch, and a London show on Johannes Vermeer.
