La nuit étoilée by Van Gogh is revealed at the Atelier des Lumières

The famous Dutch painter Van Gogh is honored in 2019, at the Atelier des Lumières!

After the opening in 2018 and the success of Klimt’s exhibition, the Atelier des Lumières reopened on February 22 to present Van Gogh’s most beautiful works.


L’atelier des Lumières

A former nineteenth-century foundry, L’Atelier des Lumières is today a digital cultural space with immersive works created and managed by Culture Espace. They are no less than 140 video projectors whose room is equipped, to spread over 3,300m2 of surface, floor to ceiling, on walls that rise up to 10 meters.

The first exhibition paid tribute to the Viennese artist Klimt, whose greatest works came alive in the spaces of the old foundry. The exhibition welcomed nearly 1.2 million visitors in 2018.

After a month of closing, the Atelier des Lumières reopened on February 22, 2019 to welcome the famous Dutch painter, Van Gogh, until December 31, 2019. The artist, unknown during his lifetime, was made famous after his death. Today, his works are distributed in the different museums of the world, and adulated by all. The exhibition explores Van Gogh’s vast production, which has changed radically over the years, from Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888) to Starry Night (1889) and The Bedroom. (1889): it puts on show the 2,000 paintings of the artist, painted during the last 10 years of his life, on a musical background composed for the occasion.

The small novelty of the exhibition is inside the well, which is in the heart of the building: here you can discover the comments of museums about the works on display. A true invitation to culture!


So, are you as excited as we are to go after the flowers of Van Gogh’s paintings?
