This Exhibit Gives Visitors the Experience of Stepping Inside Van Gogh’s Paintings

Last year, Culturespaces introduced us to the Atelier des Lumières. Putting a technological twist on the glistening work of Gustav Klimt, this luminous exhibition magically transformed an old iron foundry in Paris into an immersive installation. Now, the Atelier des Lumiéres is back, turning that same space into a Vincent van Gogh wonderland.

“Proposing a new, emotional, and dynamic approach to art,” the Atelier des Lumières invites visitors to step inside some of the Post-Impressionist’s most celebrated canvases. This selection of luminous, larger-than-life images includes his signature self-portraits, his series of Irises, and, his pièce de résistance, the sparkling Starry Night.

In order to take these pieces to new heights, artistic director Gianfranco Iannuzzi opted to outfit the space with 140 state-of-the-art laser video projectors. Music wafting from 50 speakers also sets the mood of the space, culminating in a fully immersive “sensorial, musical, and aesthetic experience” for art lovers of all ages.

In addition to highlighting the work of Van Gogh, the exhibition will also showcase a short program focused on Japanese art. “Van Gogh was influenced by Japanese art. In Paris, he frequented Impressionists who admired japonisme,” Bruno Monnier, the president of Culturespaces, explains. “To highlight Van Gogh’s fascination with Japanese art, we commissioned the Danny Rose Studio to present an original piece about the imaginary works and scenes of Japan.”

Both the Starry Night exhibition and its supplemental show titled Dreamed Japan: Images of the Floating World will be on view at the Atelier des Lumières until December 31, 2019.

For their new Atelier des Lumières installment, Culturespaces invites you to step inside a collection of Van Gogh paintings.
