LUXMURALIS: The Story of the Renaissance

Tickets £10 (concessions available)

A journey through the renaissance world through the eyes of the artists and Masters of the time, brought to life in a spectacular fully curated son-et-lumiere experience.

The Renaissance was a time of major transformation in the world, through cultural, artistic, political and economic growth from the 14th to the 17th century. Some of the greatest thinkers emerged through this period which changed the world.

In this installation, we invite the viewer to become immersed amongst the greatest paintings and artworks of the time, to explore through light art and bespoke compositions the wonder and awe that revolutionised Europe. Sound and light art is projected onto architectural features transforming and enveloping the space.

Visitors will walk through and view individual light and sound art installations digitally and artistically created by artistic collaboration ‘Luxmuralis’ which highlight the architectural features of the space. Viewers are immersed in the soundscapes they hear and walk through the projections that are all around them on an explorative journey through the artworks.

Luxmuralis is a collaborative team combining artists from different backgrounds and artistic disciplines – creating works across multiple media and presentation formats – the stained-glass windows of our time, bringing stories to life!

Lead artist and Artistic Director: Peter Walker MRBS FRS
