This year, Culturespaces transformed L’Atelier des Lumières, the first digital art center in Paris, into a Vincent van Gogh wonderland. Aptly called as the Starry Night exhibition, the show invites visitors to step inside the most iconic paintings of the great Dutch painter.
Culturespaces created L’Atelier des Lumières in 2018, turning a 19th century abandoned foundry into a digital art place for immersive shows. Its first exhibition was an immersive digital installation of Austrian painter Gustav Klimt’s famous artworks.
This time, the luminous, larger-than-life images include van Gogh’s signature Self-Portraits, “Sunflowers,” and “The Starry Night.”
In addition to showcasing the famous painter’s works, the exhibit also features a short program about Japanese Art.
“Van Gogh was influenced by Japanese art. In Paris, he frequented Impressionists who admired japonisme,” Bruno Monnier, the president of Culturespaces, said according to My Modern Met.
The Starry Night and Dreamed Japan: Images of the Floating World are available on viewing at the Atelier des Lumières until December 31, 2019.
