Carrières des Lumières

During these unique evenings, discover or relive the emotion of previous exhibitions. An original selection of works by the great masters of painting: Klimt, a century of gold and colour (2014), Flower Power (2018), Venice, from Canaletto to Monet (2022).

Klimt, a century of gold and colour (2014): The viewer, fully immersed in image and sound, is invited to live a unique sensory experience, discovering the pictorial universe of Gustav Klimt (1862-1918), Egon Schiele (1890-1918), and Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928-2000). The show offers an original look at Klimt and his successors through the staging of portraits, landscapes, nudes, colours and gilding that revolutionised Viennese painting from the end of the 19th century and during the following century.

Flower Power (2018): The Carrières des Lumières are transformed into an imaginary city where spectators are invited to stroll and lose themselves in the footsteps of this generation of the late 1960s. The walls of the buildings are coloured with graphic hippie motifs, giant flowers grow on the facades before invading the whole city. The streets are clothed in the faces, symbols and icons of Flower Power, taking visitors back to the heart of this iconic period.

Venice, from Canaletto to Monet (2022):The exhibition takes you on a journey through the city of Venice to discover its immense artistic and architectural treasures. Strolling along the Grand Canal and canals, the alleys and squares, the buildings and churches, enjoy a walk between the interior and exterior, the sacred and the profane, in search of the visible symbols of an exceptional past. Immerse yourself in the Byzantine art and golden mosaics of St. Mark’s Basilica, in the masterpieces of Tintoretto, Bellini or Canaletto or in the famous Mostra del Cinema with photographs of Italian neo-realistic actors and actresses.
