The perpetually renewed magic of the Atelier des Lumières

The perpetually renewed magic of the Atelier des Lumières

The Atelier des Lumières is an experience to be lived rather than described. The digital exhibition space unveils a new program dedicated to the Orientalists from February 9 onwards. Take advantage of your stay in Paris at the Hôtel Albe Bastille to discover it.

A dazzling concept

Inspired by what is done in Les Baux-de-Provence with the Carrières de Lumières, the Atelier des Lumières has taken over the magnificent volumes of a former foundry to offer digital exhibitions. Projections cover all surfaces of the vast space, including ceilings, walls, and floors, allowing a plunge into the heart of the artworks. Similarly, the light brings out the colors, and the large format highlights every detail down to the finesse of the stroke. Accompanied by music, these wordless projections are an opportunity to discover works intimately, connecting directly to the emotion. They become accessible to everyone, from the youngest to adults, from specialists to novices.

The new program on the Orientalists

Starting from February 9, the Atelier des Lumières presents its new creation. After Chagall and Klee, we embark on a journey to discover the Orientalists: Delacroix, Gérôme, and Ingres. Pioneers of a new style, they also open the door, through their travel notebooks, to another world where light plays a crucial role. Sun-soaked landscapes, portraits with a thousand details, narrow souk streets, and wild animals constitute the basis of their repertoire, recreating a fascinating world for their contemporaries as well as for us. On the borderline between dream and reality, surrealism and study, they take us with them far, very far away.

Every new exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières is an event. Don't miss the one dedicated to the Orientalists during your visit to the Hôtel Albe Bastille. It's only a 20-minute walk or a fifteen-minute metro ride!
