Following the global success of the Van Gogh Alive exhibition, Grande Experiences are now bringing a new exhibition to Sydney with the title Monet & Friends. Beginning 12th March, a visit will see you transported to 19th Century Paris at a time when a bohemian hub of creativity and innovation was about to change the face of European art.
As sure as Van Gogh Alive was the art event of 2020, the visually spectacular Monet & Friends will be the hit of 2021.
Exploring the lives and works of Claude Monet and The Impressionists, this immersive SENSORY4 experience is full of vibrant visuals that celebrate life, light and colour. A stunning musical score accompanies the beauty of the images that will surely have you mesmerised.
Bringing paintings to life on such an enormous projected scale is something the artists would not have envisaged at the time, and with the music of some of the greats of all time, it makes for an art experience that's as far off as you can get from any traditional museum or gallery experience.
Monet's friends in this exhibition of bold brushstrokes include Renoir, Pissarro, Degas and Cézanne, to name just a few, whilst the musical score includes the likes of Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Ravel and Offenbach.
This world of Impressionism paired with cutting-edge technology will stimulate your senses from the moment you enter the venue. Be sure to move around and view the exhibition from different perspectives. Information panels on the artists, along with a timeline of the era (1860-1890), make for an interesting read too.
The multimedia format attracts new audiences, young and old, in a way that traditional exhibitions don't. Families will enjoy it as there's no need to tiptoe around in silence (pretty much impossible with young children).
You can enjoy this unique digital experience of masterpieces at the Royal Hall of Industries in the Entertainment Quarter of Moore Park. It's open 7days a week, from 9am, with session times and prices varying according to time and date. Bookings can be made through Ticketek.
Whether you're a lover of art or not, this travelling exhibition is one you won't want to miss. With gorgeous imagery and music, you'll feel as if you're in France and we certainly need an escape after the pandemic-ridden year we've endured.
Note, the environment here is Covid-safe and allows for social distancing.
