This Unique Audiovisual Exhibit Will Let You Experience What It’s Like To Be A Part Of A Van Gogh Painting
The Atelier des Lumières digital art center in Paris has recently launched a new exhibition called Van Gogh, Starry Night – an impressive visual and musical installation, honoring the works on Vincent Van Gogh. Produced by Culturespaces and created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, the exhibition features some of the artist’s most famous works projected onto the art center’s walls by over a hundred projectors and music by composer Luca Longobardi.
“The exhibition explores van Gogh’s numerous works, which radically evolved over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888) and Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom at Arles (1889),” write Culturespaces in a press release. “The Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brushstrokes and is illuminated by the bold colours of his unique paintings.”
“Warm hues give way to sombre colours. The immersive exhibition evokes van Gogh’s highly emotional, chaotic, and poetic inner world and highlights the constant interplay of light and shade.”
The visitors will be introduced to the many stages of Van Gogh’s life – from his early days in Nuenen to his last in Auvers-sur-Oise.
The art center says the visual and musical work will highlight the richness of the painter’s palette as well as his use of the impasto technique.
The exhibition will be on display until the 31st of December, 2019, so don’t forget to visit it the next time you’re in Paris!
