A First for Southeast Asia
Running from July 1 to September 30, 2023, ATIN Global Inc. and SEE Global Entertainment Inc. have unveiled a landmark in Southeast Asia’s art scene: “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition.” This globally celebrated, multi-sensory exhibition, which has enthralled spectators from the bustling streets of New York to the historic lanes of Vienna to Los Angeles and more—will be stopping over in Manila, at the second floor, North Wing of Estancia Mall, Capitol Commons, Pasig City.
Since its kick-off on July 1st, the exhibition has begun to captivate Manila, providing a unique chance for art aficionados, historians, students, and travel enthusiasts to come face-to-face with some of the art world’s most renowned masterpieces. Right here in the heart of the city, the awe-inspiring creations of Michelangelo are presented in an up-close and life-sized format, providing an awe-inspiring glimpse into the intricacies of these timeless masterpieces.
A Feast for the Eyes: Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel Frescoes
Embark on an artistic journey with “Il Divino” (The Divine One), as Michelangelo was fondly called by his contemporaries. The exhibition illuminates his 34 iconic frescoes, such as “The Last Judgment” and “The Creation of Adam”.
These masterpieces have been ‘lifted’ from the Sistine Chapel’s ceilings using innovative technology and meticulous research. Now at eye level, visitors can revel in the dynamic compositions and expressive faces, bringing them closer to Michelangelo’s genius than ever before. Each image is accompanied by informative signage and audio guides, which they can access by downloading the “Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel” app and listen to using their personal headsets.
A Journey Back in Time
The journey begins the moment visitors step inside the exhibition grounds of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, designed to transport them directly into the hallowed halls of the actual Sistine Chapel in Vatican City.
Inside, guests can travel back to a bygone era, accompanied by ambient Renaissance music curated by Manila Symphony Orchestra conductor, Marlon Chan. The immersive experience is enhanced by subtle scents of patchouli, sandalwood, and frankincense wafting through the halls, enticing the senses.
