«From Monet to Kandinsky. Great Modernists» covers an area of up to 1,000m2 and presents the works of 9 most reputable masters of modernism in a unique combination of HD projections, animated graphics and music. Claude Monet, Georges Seurat, Paul Cézanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Edward Munch, Juan Gris, Robert Delaunay, Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky – they all had in common a deliberate rejection of the styles of the past; emphasising instead innovation and experimentation in forms, materials and techniques in order to find visual forms to capture the tremendous upheavals of their time.
The exhibition consists of 9 films mainly devoted to the art of each master, projected to huge screens, placed at different angles in multimedia halls. The loop of around 45 minutes is an original and holistic work of art immersing the visitor into the world created by each master. The projections are changing from one to another, coming to life and moving in the rhythm of music and capturing the viewer into the flood of colours and sounds. Around 1,000 works from over 12 museums of the world have been processed for this exciting exhibition.
The exhibition is a serious educational platform – in a special anteroom before visiting the exhibition viewers will be able to immerse themselves into the context of the era, and to understand the artists’ logic which led them from the realistic depiction of reality to abstract art.
