Bassins des Lumières, Bordeaux
The largest digital art centre in the world
In 2020, Culturespaces opened the largest digital art centre in the world: the Bassins des Lumières. Located in Bordeaux’s former submarine base, the Bassins des Lumières present monumental immersive digital exhibitions devoted to the major artists in the history of art and contemporary art. The submarine base’s surface area is three times the size of that of the Carrières des Lumières in Les Baux-de-Provence and five times that of the Atelier des Lumières in Paris. The digital exhibitions will be perfectly adapted to the monumental architecture of the submarine base and will be reflected in the water of the four enormous basins, thereby adding a new dimension to the immersive experience. Visits will be conducted on gangways above the water and along the quays of the enormous basins.
