Video, 3D reproductions, touch-screens, interactive devices will reveal to visitors an explosion of color unveiled by the long process of cleaning. Exclusively and only for the duration of the exhibition, Alchemy will be viewable without glass or plexiglas, rendering vivid the astonishing relief-like surface of the densely worked image. [info]
