Immersive Vincent Van Gogh Show Opens, Paris- Digital Art

(March 5, The Guardian). Vincent van Gogh’s life is the focus of an immersive experience at L’Atelier des Lumières, Paris’ first digital art museum (until 31 December). In a disused foundry in the city’s bohemian 11th arrondissement, hundreds of the Dutchman’s paintings have been transformed using art and music technology. For 35 minutes, visitors roam around his work, from the dreamy Sunflowers (1888) to the tormented spires of Starry Night (1889).

One of the most striking elements of the exhibition is the use of contemporary music. Nina Simone’s Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood powers around the foundry as visitors view some of the famous works, including The Siesta, Van Gogh painted while living in an asylum; the words of the song mirror a cry for understanding in his time of darkness.

2. And spring is so wonderful in Paris. I won't make this but can

can enjoy images & the new VAN GOGH film, 'At Eternity's Gate' with actor Willem Dafoe. It received good reviews.

4. I have the DVD from the Gustav Klimt exhibition

and although it is fantastically put together, I don't know that I would enjoy moving around watching video instead of the real paintings, but it looks cool, I am sure its a great experience.
