In 2018, Culturespaces opened their doors to the Atelier Des Lumières. Which showcased the work from Gustav Klimt in a very different way to the norm. The exhibition transformed an old iron foundry in Paris into a magical, immersive installation. Now that same space is home to the works of Vincent Van Gogh.
“Proposing a new, emotional, and dynamic approach to art.”
The Atelier Des Lumières will showcase Van Gogh’s popular works from his series of Irises and his pièce de résistance, the sparkling Starry Night.
The artistic director behind the design is Gianfranco Iannuzi. He wanted it so you immediately felt immersed into the artworks. Using 140 laser video projectors and 50 speakers playing sounds. It really does set the mood well for everyone, not just art enthusiasts.
The exhibition also features some beautiful Japanese artwork.
“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.”
