Ever wanted to get a first-hand look at a Van Gogh or Hokusai? As of this year, you won’t have to travel too far. Culturespaces Digital is bringing it all to the GCC, launching the biggest digital art centre in the region.
The organization is the leading creator of digital art centres and immersive exhibitions around the world. Their highly-acclaimed venues in Paris, Provence and Bordeaux as well as in South Korea attract over two million visitors every year. And they’re bringing it to the heart of Dubai.
In collaboration with Dubai-based digital art institution, InfinityArt, the space is entitled Infinity des Lumières and will introduce a completely innovative and technology-driven art to its visitors. The gallery will be taking over The Dubai Mall with a magnificent art display of 130 projectors, 58 speakers and an incredible 3,000 HD digital animated images spread over 2,700 square metres.
“For the first time in this region residents and tourists alike will have the opportunity to experience an unforgettable multi-sensory journey, as they watch art come to life all around them” said Luc Archambeaud, Head of Business Development of Culturespaces, in a statement.
Infinity des Lumières will feature three exhibitions: ‘Van Gogh’ which will bring to life some of the Dutch artist’s iconic paintings such as Starry Night and The Potato Eaters through cutting-edge digital animation.
Also on display is ‘Dreamed Japan’ which will explore renowned Japanese artist Hokusai’s ukiyo-e art concept—meaning ‘floating world’—in a fascinating display of geishas, samurai warriors and sea landscapes.
‘Verse’, a hypnotic and metaphysical display representing the movements of the cosmos through an explosion of wondrous colours, shapes and sounds will also be showcased.
“Visitors will have infinite possibilities to be at the centre of art, fully immersed and connected to it. The inspiring exhibitions speak universally to different audiences, of all ages and cultural backgrounds,” explained Catherine Oriol, Director of Infinity des Lumières.
The gallery is set to open in early 2021, program and dates are yet to be announced.
