This Monday and Tuesday, April 27 and 28, Laemmle’s Culture Vulture series returns to two of the world’s great museums for MATISSE. Hailed as the most successful exhibition in Tate Modern’s history, you can still catch this once-in-a-lifetime Henri Matisse exhibition on a big screen, featuring exclusive new footage from MoMA New York.
Audiences are invited to enjoy an intimate, behind-the-scenes documentary about this once-in-a-lifetime blockbuster exhibition with expert contributions from those that knew Matisse as well as curators, historians, Tate director Nicholas Serota and MoMA director Glenn Lowry. Plus there are breathtaking specially commissioned performances by Royal Ballet principal dancer Zenaida Yanowsky and jazz musician Courtney Pine. Acclaimed British actor Simon Russell Beale brings insight and emotion to the words of Henri Matisse himself, while actor Rupert Young (Merlin) narrates.
‘The way the film captured Matisse at work, bringing his artistry to life – including resonant readings from Simon Russell Beale – was genuinely inspiring’ – Apollo Magazine
