Van Gogh and Monet 

Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience takes guests on a journey through the life and works of Vincent van Gogh, showcasing iconic masterpieces such as “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers,” and “Café Terrace at Night.” Freed from their frames, Van Gogh’s paintings come to life on projection-swathed walls, enveloping guests in his colorful landscapes and revealing self-portraits. Set to a symphonic score, the experience offers a narrative immersion into the artist’s dreams, thoughts, and words.

Meanwhile, Beyond Monet: The Immersive Experience offers a fresh perspective on Claude Monet’s impressionist works, featuring over 400 of his most iconic pieces including the Water Lilies series, Impression: Sunrise, and Poppies. Inspired by the Musée de l’Orangerie in Paris, guests can roam freely through the Infinity Room, where Monet’s vibrant paintings cover every surface, creating an immersive journey into the artist’s world.

Art historian Fanny Curtat highlights the impact of these immersive experiences, stating, “When you stand inside these immersive experiences, you truly feel like you are part of these artists’ world. Audiences are seeing a fresh and original perspective, allowing us to form new relationships with notable masterpieces in dynamic and fascinating ways.”

We can’t wait to check both of these out!

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
