Following the enormous success of the multi-sensory exhibition Van Gogh Alive, Grande Experiences, and Andrew Kay are teaming up once again to bring a new immersive experience to audiences. The upcoming exhibition, titled Monet in Paris – The French Impressionists Alive, celebrates the works of Claude Monet and other renowned artists from the Impressionist era. The exhibition will make its global debut in Brisbane on June 7, 2023, at Le Grand Palais in Northshore. Pre-sale tickets are available to select audiences, and general admission tickets will go on sale on March 14, 2023. The event is a limited-time affair, running from June 7 to August 6, 2023.
Grande Experiences is excited to present Monet in Paris in Brisbane in June, following the success of Van Gogh Alive. This new exhibition, which uses the same immersive multi-sensory format, will take visitors on a journey through the world of French Masters of the 19th century, including the works of Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Vincent van Gogh. The exhibition features a unique musical score and special scents that will enhance the multi-sensory experience.
The exhibition will be housed in a custom-designed Le Grand Palais, a 250-square-meter super-scaled marquee that includes six transformative breakout spaces, bars, a café, and a gift shop. Designed by Australian theatre designer Anna Cordingley, the venue is one of the largest portable exhibition buildings in the world. The centerpiece of the exhibition is Grande Experiences’ state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ technology, which combines an immersive gallery with a tailored exhibition space to project crystal-clear images on a massive scale. Visitors will lose themselves in the vibrant colors and intricate details of the Impressionists’ works, including Van Gogh’s famous Sunflowers and Starry Night. The Grand Palais will be built as energy-efficient as possible, with insulated sandwich panels and specially coated PVC roofing to reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling.
