Carrières de Lumières

Carrières de Lumières

An incredible immersive experience in the world of art and music

An immersive art centre that has become an essential venue in Provence, the Carrières de Lumières are located at the foot of the town of Les Baux-de-Provence, in the heart of the Alpilles, in a place full of mystery: the Val d’Enfer. The Carrières de Lumières has established itself as a place for transversal experimentation and cultural dissemination.

 

Since 2012, Culturespaces has been holding digital exhibitions that immerse visitors in the pictorial world of the greatest artists; the projection surface spans 7,000 m² from the floor to the ceiling, to a height of up to sixteen metres.

 

Adopting a fresh approach to art, the Carrières de Lumières welcomes visits from the general public and people of all ages. 239,000 people visited the Carrières de Lumières when it opened in 2012. This figure has now risen to 600,000 annual visitors who are attracted to this form of immersion in art.

 

In 2017, Culturespaces and the Commune des Baux received the ‘Thea Awards’, a prize awarded by an international committee: the Carrières de Lumières was awarded the prize for the best immersive production.
