Where art transcends the typical borders of the canvas…
Do you like a digital art experience in Dubai? Well, a new show is heading to Infinity des Lumières in September.
The immersive show celebrates the distinct minds of three artists: Gaudi, Kandinsky and Klee. The show lasts 45 minutes, of which 15 minutes are allocated to each artist. The show starts on September 21.
Infinity des Lumières covers an impressive 2,700 square meters where the breathtaking works will come to life through the use of 130 projectors and 58 speakers over a total projection area of 3,300 m² (walls and floor included). Visitors will be able to walk through the space and immerse themselves by connecting to a total of 3,000 high-definition digital moving images. The room will also be filled with accompanying music making the whole experience very dreamlike.
Below is some information about each of them that you can impress your friends with when you catch the show.
Antoni Gaudí was a Catalan architect from Spain and is known as the greatest exponent of Catalan modernism. Its name may not sound familiar to you, but its buildings in Barcelona are among the most famous in the world. His most popular “work of art” would have to be the Sagrada Familia – a project that spanned over 100 years.
For those of you who love abstract art, Kandinsky is an artist that probably comes to mind. The artist is recognized as one of the pioneers of abstraction in Western art. His work uses a lot of geometric shapes, lines and colors which he believes could express the inner life of artists.
Swiss-born German artist, musician and teacher, Paul Klee was involved in many of the major modern art movements, including Expressionism and Surrealism. Her art, while simple – think stick figures, hanging fish, arrows – manages to create movement when paired with her choice of colors. His works reflect his dry humor and sometimes childish perspective, his personal moods and beliefs, and his musicality.
