Centuries later, with help from LG Canada, the Renaissance master’s drawings come alive at the AGO
Many of Michelangelo’s works were drawn on small tablets or scrolls, which makes it difficult for the human eye to fully appreciate his attention to detail and inexhaustible creativity. LG’s digital screens and content specially developed for the exhibition magnify five of these works through a video wall, offering visitors an immersive and interactive experience. In total, Michelangelo: Quest for Genius integrates 10 LG 4K and OLED panels, in addition to five LG tablets all helping to illustrate and extend the exhibition’s stories. In the video above, AGO interpretive planner David Wistow explains the value of bringing centuries-old art and cutting edge technology together in Quest for Genius.
