Cézanne – Kandinsky

Spring to 2 January 2022

Long programme

Cézanne, master of Provence

The Carrières de Lumières’ immersive digital exhibition presents Cézanne’s (1839-1906) masterpieces such as his still lifes of apples, the Card Players and the Large Bathers.

A self-taught painter who produced 900 canvasses and 400 watercolours, Cézanne represents portraits, still lifes, landscapes, historical scenes … and painted multiple versions of the same subjects, ceaselessly experimenting with the possibilities of the pictorial material.

Through a thematic, intimate and retrospective tour, this immersive exhibition reveals Cézanne’s inner torment, the strength of his constructions, his relationship with light and colour and his attachment to nature, which remains his great model, his obsessional reference.

Creation and staging: Cutback under the artistic direction of Gianfranco Iannuzzi.

Duration: 35 min

Short programme

Wassily Kandinsky, the Abstract Odyssey

Direction and staging: Cutback under the artistic direction of Virginie Martin.
