Interview with Phil Grabsky

Watch a short interview with Phil Grabsky to find out more about how EXHIBITION ON SCREEN came into existence. Phil explains why a cinema experience of an Art exhibition is unique - not only for people that cannot visit the exhibition themselves, but even for people that have been lucky enough to be able to see the Exhibitions for themselves.

In Phil Grabsky's words:

“One of the questions asked, perhaps most frequently, is 'why would I go to the cinema to see an art exhibition?’ I find that easy to answer. What we offer is an opportunity to see the exhibition if you can’t get a ticket or you don’t live in the country of the exhibition. Secondly we offer expert analysis, biography of the artist, behind-the-scenes, all those hidden nooks and crannies that you and I can’t normally get to."

“… what I’ve seen and have been so delighted to recognise is that there is a different and much stronger emotional connection with a cinema screen than with a television screen. And if you can’t get to stand in front of that particular painting, on your own, this is the next best thing, I’m absolutely sure about that.”
