Produced by Culturespaces, created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto and Massimiliano Siccardi - with the musical collaboration of Luca Longobardi.

The new digital exhibition in the Atelier des Lumières immerses visitors in the paintings of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), a genius who was not recognised during his lifetime and who transformed painting. Projected on all the surface of the Atelier, this new visual and musical production retraces the intense life of the artist, who, during the last ten years of his life, painted more than 2,000 pictures, which are now in collections around the world.

The exhibition explores van Gogh’s numerous works, which radically evolved over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888) and Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom at Arles (1889). The Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brushstrokes and is illuminated by the bold colours of his unique paintings. Warm hues give way to sombre colours. The immersive exhibition evokes van Gogh’s highly emotional, chaotic, and poetic inner world and highlights the constant interplay of light and shade.

The thematic itinerary retraces stages of the artist’s life, and his sojourns in Neunen, Arles, Paris, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Auvers-sur-Oise. Visitors are transported into the heart of his works, from his early to mature years, and from his sunny landscapes and nightscapes to his portraits and still lives.

This is complemented by a new educational device inside the tank located in the centre of the Atelier: a selection of van Gogh’s famous paintings are represented in their entirety and accompanied by commentaries about his oeuvre and the museum in which it is exhibited.

The visual and musical work produced by Culturespaces and directed by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, highlights the chromatic richness of his palette, as well as the potency of his drawings and his use of impasto.

This journey into van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces, which are turned into moving images via the AMIEX® (Art & Music Immersive Experience) system, gives the colours a renewed impact.

Dreamed Japan, Images of a floating world

This production by the Danny Rose Studio, which highlights van Gogh’s fascination with Japan, is a contemplative and audio journey into the environment of the masters of Japanese prints.

Verse by Thomas Vanz in Le STUDIO

A new piece created specifically for Le Studio in the Atelier des Lumières, Verse is a hypnotic and metaphysical journey. Astrophysics discoveries have always fascinated people and raise questions that may never be answered. Verse explores the role of man in this universe and highlights the beauty of the infinite space around us.
