Prague Castle has launched an Alphonse Mucha “e-MOTION” exhibit, showcasing the Czech painter’s world-renowned work in 3D motion and “larger-than-life size”.
The exhibition is set up in over 2,000 square metres of the Prague Castle Riding Hall, the largest Baroque-style building in Prague Castle.
Mucha’s work is displayed in large, 3D and moving projections, bringing his paintings to life. Visitors will be “immersed in the moments when he created his work” in an exhibit portraying the Art Nouveau masters’ studio.
The e-MOTION display will also see the auction of the first NFT of Mucha’s art – a collection of 20 paintings in the form of animated images.
The Castle plans to provide a particularly “emotional experience” in the projection of Mucha’s Slav Epic painting, where “visitors will stand in the very centre of the most important milestones in the history of the Slavic peoples”.
Open until the 13th of September, the exhibition is open Monday to Thursday from 10:00 to 19:00 and 10:00 to 21:00 Friday through Sunday.
Admission is priced at 350 Kč for adults and 250 Kč for children aged 6-15, students up to the age of 26 and seniors over the age of 65. School classes may also attend for 200 Kč per child, with one teacher going free for every 10 students.
ALPHONSE MUCHA e-MOTION
Unique multimedia processing of Alfons Mucha’s paintings and posters in larger-than-life size, in motion and 3D space.
More than 2,000 square metres of the Prague Castle Riding Hall will come alive with a unique premiere exhibition of 360° large-scale projections of Alfons Mucha’s work and the world’s first NFT of the Art Nouveau great’s work.
Visitors will be completely absorbed by large-scale projections created from Mucha’s moving posters and stained glass windows from St. Vitus Cathedral. In addition, they will find themselves in the middle of the Art Nouveau master’s studio, where they will be immersed in the moments when he created his work.
A powerful emotional experience will be offered by the projection of the Slavic Epic, where visitors will stand in the very centre of the events of the most important milestones in the history of the Slavic peoples, surrounded by vivid scenes from monumental stunning canvases.
They will also have the opportunity to see the launch of Alfons Mucha’s first moving paintings in the form of the NFT – an exclusive collection offered through auction. The collection includes 20 animated images. The owner of all NFTs from the collection will be entitled to a premium video of the Slavic Epic.
