Discover abstract art pioneer Vassily Kandinsky through the immersive exhibition of the Atelier des Lumières: “Kandinsky, The Odyssey of Abstraction”. Running from February 18, 2022 to January 1, 2023.

Bright colors, bold mix, hypnotizing geometric shapes: Vassily Kandinsky is given pride of place at the Atelier des Lumières. From February 18, 2022 to January 1, 2023, the museum stages the Russian painter’s work in a never-before-seen and short creation.

The immersive “Kandinsky, The Odyssey of Abstraction” exhibition unveils the artist’s quest who freed himself from the classic rules of painting to create a brand-new form of art. Often considered as the father of the first ever abstract art piece in the modern era, Vassily Kandinsky has ventured into unknown areas, making his own way to express his vision of art.

The Atelier des Lumières returns on the career of the artist, from his figurative debut, influenced by impressionism, oneiric fauvism and pointillism to his experimentations and debuts of abstraction.

The exhibition also takes us to the Russian painter’s memories and the folklore of his birthland. Then, as his style evolves, discover more and more modern and colorful compositions. The shapes and colors almost turn into scoresheets reading unique and new music.

With this exclusive art form, Kandinsky stands out from the outer world and intends to represent his inner universe, looking to create an abstract osmosis through brush strokes, freed from any constraint.

As usual, we expect to enjoy a unique playlist matching the exhibition. The Atelier des Lumières always add music to their creations, this abstract universe enables to create a musical dialog with works of art.

Before admiring Kandinsky, The Odyssey of Abstraction, discover the second exhibition of the Atelier des Lumières for the season 2022: Cézanne, the Lights of Provence.
