Claude Monet and the Impressionists brought to life in a cutting-edge art exhibition
Immerse yourself in the art of Claude Monet and Impressionism this October at Melbourne's innovative Monet & Friends Alive exhibition.
It's been more than a century since Claude Monet painted his famous waterlilies from his garden in Giverny, France.
Renowned for painting outdoors and capturing nature in the moment, it’s safe to say that the artist probably never imagined that one day his works would be showcased in a four-storey gallery using large-scale digital projection and animation.
From October 26, the Lume – Melbourne’s purpose-built immersive gallery – will host Monet & Friends Alive, an exploration of Monet and his fellow Impressionists that positions guests within the paintings themselves.
“What we've done in the immersive experience is really tried to capture that spontaneity, that really quick brushstroke work, and that energy that comes through with Impressionist art and translate that into immersive art,” says Gary Moynihan, Head of Creative Design for the Lume’s parent company, Grande Experiences.
Monet & Friends is showing at the Lume from October 26, 2022. Plan your journey there using arevo.
