The French society Culturespaces is by now famous for organising unique and immersive exhibitions in its Atélier des Lumières in Paris. And a new one is opening this week to help visitors step inside the world of Impressionism and beyond.
The exhibition Monet, Renoir… Chagall. Voyages en Méditerranée highlights the connection between twenty of the most famous painters of the 19th and 20th century and the Mediterranean, to see how their “artistic personalities reveal themselves when they come into contact with these seaside landscapes”.
Visitors will have the chance to explore 500 masterpieces from artists belonging to several artistic movements - Impressionists like Monet and Renoir, Pointillists like Signac, Fauvists like Matisse. The whole exhibit is a journey through the time when Western painting made its shift into modernity, all coming from Culturespaces’s previous exhibition dedicated to the works of Vincent Van Gogh.

Monet, Renoir… Chagall. Voyages en Méditerranée is made up of seven sequences lasting forty minutes each where the ten metre-high walls of the old iron foundry that make up the atélier light up with paintings and colours and movements. Visitors can also navigate through the exhibition thanks to a free app that will allow them to see the details of each painting and in which world-famous museum it’s currently located.
The exhibition opens at the Atélier des Lumières in the 11th Arrondissement of Paris on 28 February and will remain open until 3 January 2021. You can find more information on its official website here.
