New exhibition opens at THE LUME in Melbourne this week
The digital immersion into Leonardo da Vinci’s art and inventions opens this week, with corporate event bookings on offer as always.

The experience is perhaps the most aligned to corporate Australia of the four towering exhibitions that have been held at THE LUME since it opened in 2021.

Within its permanent home at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC), the exhibition will feature original pages from da Vinci’s notebook, real life models of the inventions found in his sketches and a 360-degree replica of da Vinci’s most famous artwork, the Mona Lisa, which will show layers of the painting not visible in the final work.

THE LUME is available for exclusive use for corporate and other business events outside of its open to the public hours.

With the exhibition’s digital projections reaching four storeys high, the venue can host up to 1,200 attendees, using the installed exhibition or with custom branding of the entire exhibition space.

The MCEC kitchen team have devised a special menu aligned with da Vinci for events held in THE LUME while the master inventor is in the building.

“The menu epitomises classic Italian cuisine,” said MCEC’s executive sous chef of culinary development, Karl Edmonds.

“Think arancini, minestrone and pasta dishes, antipasto to share, and for a sweet treat, Italian-style croissants, donuts, panettone and gelato created in-house by our award-winning pastry team.

“If prosecco, spritz, or Sangiovese aren’t your drink of choice, the beverage menu also features a chilled, fruity mimosa mocktail.

“We’re proud to create a menu that seamlessly weaves together the art, culture and influences of the time, delivering authentic experiences for both visitors and corporate events,” he said.
