Dubbed as L’Atelier des Lumières, this unique cultural space has the honor of becoming the very first digital fine art museum in the Capital of France, in the 11th arrondissement. In order to provide the ultimate user experience while viewing the artistic masterpieces on display, the museum features state-of-the-art projection technology combined with an original music score.
Culturespaces is the organization behind this ambitious project, that since its inception has been managing monuments, museums and art centres as well as promoting access to art and cultural heritage to children in less opportune circumstances. As a whole, the organization currently operates in 12 facilities, such as the Musée Jacquemart-André and the Musée Maillol, both located in Paris.
Their newest Parisian project will replicate the concept of the Carrières de Lumières in the village of Baux-de-Provence. This project has already displayed a wide variety of works of art from some of the world’s most influential artists, such as Gauguin, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Chagall, Klimt, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and Raphael. L’Atelier des Lumières will follow a similar format but in its own distinctive way.
Once open, it will show two exhibitions per year. The first is to feature a major name from art history and a second, shorter exhibition dedicated to the work of a contemporary artist. This unique museum is bound to become one of the most awe-inspiring places to visit in Paris and will allow visitors to get a deeper meaning on the beauty of art.
