L’Atelier des Lumières: the new place dedicated to digital art in Paris

On April 13th, the first digital art centre of Paris will open its doors on the Rue Saint-Maur, in the 11th district, near the Hôtel Mareuil. Its name: L’Atelier des Lumières.

Art meets digital technology
It’s in the old Plichon iron foundry, opened in 1835, that the “Atelier des Lumières” is located. Here, the artworks are not hung on the wall but projected from floor to ceiling, on about 3300 sq m! Indeed, this new “art place” offers immersive exhibitions where visitors are literally plunged in artworks. To make this technical prowess real, no less than 120 beamers and 50 speakers are used in both rooms of the location: “La Halle” (1500 sq m) and “Le Studio” (160 sq m). As of April 13th, and until November the 11th, 2018, aficionados of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, two Austrian symbolist painters, will be able to admire over hundreds of their digitised paintings. The staging is made with music to make it even more remarkable. Don’t wait any longer and book your ticket soon!
