About the Museum
Located between Bastille and Nation, in a former foundry in the eleventh arrondissement of Paris, the Atelier des Lumières will hold monumental immersive exhibitions. Using 140 video projectors and a spatialised sound system, the highly unique multimedia equipment will cover a total surface area of 3,300 m2, extending from the floors to the ceilings and over walls up to ten metres high.
The Atelier des Lumières includes two areas for visitors: la halle and le studio. In la halle, a continuous cycle of digital exhibitions will be projected, alternating between a long programme, devoted to the great figures in the history of art, and a short, more contemporary programme.
In le studio, the visitors will discover the work of experienced or emerging artists.
