New to the roster of immersive exhibitions at the Atelier des Lumières in Paris, Van Gogh, Starry Night takes visitors on a journey through Vincent Van Gogh’s prolific life and his sojourns in France and the Netherlands. From his early years to his later, radically different years, all of the impressionist painter’s landscapes, portraits, and still lives are on display. Van Gogh, Starry Night runs from February 22, 2019, until December 31, 2019.
Van Gogh’s numerous works, including The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888), Starry Night (1889), and Bedroom at Arles (1889), are projected on all surfaces of the Atelier, inviting viewers into a 360-degree view of the artist’s private world — highly emotional, chaotic, poetic. The impressionist is known for his expressive and powerful brushstrokes, use of bold colors, and interplay of light and shade. Accompanying the exhibition, and located in a “tank” in the center of the room, is a selection of Van Gogh’s famous paintings, with commentaries about the works and the museums in which they are displayed.
Visual and musical work are produced by Culturespaces and directed by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi.
