The Buzz in Paris: Atelier Des Lumières

The Buzz in Paris: Atelier Des Lumières

Following the success of the extraordinary multimedia shows at Carrières de Lumières in Provence, which attracts more than 600,000 visitors every year in the picturesque village of Les Baux-de-Provence, the exciting concept has arrived in Paris.

L’Atelier des Lumières, the city’s first digital art centre, has opened its doors in the 11th arrondissement in a former iron foundry (as of April 13). The new digital hub offers monumental immersive exhibitions thanks to 120 video projectors scattered across the 2,000 m2 space and a state-of-the-art sound system. The inaugural show is devoted to Gustav Klimt, Egon Schiele, and the artists of the Vienna Secession in the 19th century. It’s like stepping inside a giant painting, with a soaring high-quality soundtrack adding to the sensory experience.

Note: L’Atelier des Lumières has been such a smashing success that it’s been sold out when we’ve checked availability. It’s best to book tickets online in advance.

L’Atelier des Lumières, 8 Rue Saint-Maur, 75011 Paris. Full price ticket is 14,5 euros. Open every day from 10 am to 6 pm. On Fridays and Saturdays it stays open late until 10 pm. Website:
