MONET, RENOIR... CHAGALL. JOURNEYS AROUND THE MEDITERRANEAN // YVES KLEIN: INFINITE BLUE

BASSINS DE LUMIÈRES - BORDEAUX

'Monet, Renoir, and Chagall: Journeys Around the Mediterranean’, created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, presents visitors with an itinerary that spans the period between Impressionism and modernism. After the exhibition devoted to Gustav Klimt, the new digital exhibition highlights the link between artistic creativity and the Mediterranean shores, as the principal centres of the modernist movement. The exhibition immerses visitors in the masterpieces of twenty artists, including Renoir, Monet, Pissarro, Signac, Derain, Vlaminck, Dufy, and Chagall, amongst others.

All these artists had links with the Mediterranean, either through their origins, or via their stays in the Midi. More than 500 works, which are now held in collections around the world, will fill the Bassins de Lumières with their bright colours and highlight the variations in the works of these great artists on the Mediterranean shores, which inspired them to take their work to its fines expression.

 

The short programme, 'Yves Klein: Infinite Blue’ , is a ten-minute-long work which immerses visitors in the artist’s works, going beyond the famous International Klein Blue (IKB), a combination of ultramarine pigment and special binder. Amongst other works, visitors will discover the body prints with his Anthropometries, and nature with his Cosmogonies and his Planetary Reliefs.

 

In the Cube, area dedicated to contemporary works, two creations will be presented: EVERYTHING, an audiovisual experience by the Nohlab studio, questions the world around us. 
MEMORIES, created by the Spectre Lab studio, is a reflection about human brain, especially memory.
