About Claude Monet:
Claude Monet, The Immersive Experience” is a unique digital art exhibition. Claude Monet’s masterpieces get literally animated under your feet and 360° around you. We digitalized more than 300 painting and sketches by the artist, and curated a unique show, taking the visitor through Monet and his voyage to better understand impressionism. An unforgettable immersive experience already featured in Barcelona, Brussels and Turin.
The Exhibition is composed of multiples activities and takes about 1 to 1h 30. Along with the 35 minutes immersive show is completed by 3 other gallleries:
- A unique VR experience (virtual reality) to slip into the skin of Claude Monet. Thanks to special glasses, this 10-minute experience takes the visitor to Monet’s Atelier at Giverny but also to London, to the Netherlands, to Norway and of course to his works.
- A 'Sketch and Post’ activity, for children and grown-ups: it’s a call for imagination, inviting everyone to complete Monet’s paintings by colouring them or sketching a new creation, and post it to a digital wall.
- A reconstitution of the Atelier Giverny, the Artist’s place of work and inspiration.
