As of Friday 18 february 2022, the Atelier des Lumières will hold two new immersive digital exhibitions: a long programme, "Cezanne, The Lights of Provence", and a short programme "Kandinsky, The Odyssey of Abstraction ".

Long programme "Cezanne, the Lights of Provence"

Via a thematic and intimate itinerary that promotes reflection, the immersive exhibition  reveals Cezanne’s inner torment, the power of his compositions, his approach to light and colour, and his link with nature, which was his greatest source of inspiration-his obsession. The visitors are then immersed in nature, under the vast canopy of the trees, forests, parks, and gardens where the bathers can be seen, ending with the Cezannian representation of nature par excellence: Bibémus and l’Estaque, culminating in the Mont Sainte-Victoire. His paintings are also deeply and completely sincere, conveying the artist’s uncertainty and passion. Visitors will view representations that reflect the artist’s personal life: the self-portraits that capture his inner torment, the sobriety that resulted from the slow pace of daily life in Aix-en-Provence, and the intimacy of his studio.

Short programme "Kandinsky, the Odyssey of Abstraction"

This immersive exhibition focuses on Kandinsky’s spiritual quest, via the major artistic phases of his life, from Moscow to Paris. It is composed of two distinct parts: his figurative work and the advent of abstraction. The first part evokes the artist’s early figurative work, influenced by Impressionism, oniric Fauvism, and, to some extent, pointillism. Visitors are initially plunged into Kandinsky’s memories, Russian folklore, and the country’s legendary capital. The second part is more experimental, highlighting the force of movement and the rhythm of forms and colour. Immersed in a chromatic explosion, visitors will discover the most significant works of this modernist impetus—Composition VIII (1923) and Yellow-Red-Blue (1925)—up to the biomorphic works of his last years. Becoming closer to music, painting gradually shifted away from representational constraints and no longer used the real world as a reference but the inner self instead. A veritable invitation to explore Kandinsky’s inner cosmos, the immersive exhibition disorientates the visitors and eventually attains an abstract and liberated osmosis.
