As of Friday 4 march 2022, the Carrieres des Lumières will hold two new immersive digital exhibitions: a long programme, "Venice, from Canaletto to Monet" and a short programme, "Yves Klein, infinite blue".

Long programme: Venice, from Canaletto to Monet

The immersive exhibition takes visitors on a journey of discovery of the artistic and architectural treasures of the city of Venice. As they explore the Grand Canal and the canals, lanes, squares, buildings, and churches the visitors are taken on a journey through Venetian interiors and exteriors—both holy and secular—in search of the visible symbols of the city’s extraordinary history. For around forty minutes, the visitors will be immersed in Byzantine art and the impressive golden mosaics of Saint Mark’s Basilica, the masterpieces of Tintoretto, Bellini, and Canaletto, and the famous Mostra del Cinema, with photos of the actresses and actors of Italian neorealist films.

Short programme: Yves Klein, Infinite blue

A native of Nice, Yves Klein loved the Mediterranean sky and was inspired by it to create his first work. In Yves Klein’s work, colour took on a spiritual and metaphysical dimension. This tenminute-long work immerses visitors in the artist’s works, going beyond the famous International Klein Blue (IKB), a combination of ultramarine pigment and special binder. Amongst other works, visitors will discover the body prints with his Anthropometries, and nature with his Cosmogonies and his Planetary Reliefs.
