Les Carrières de Lumières honours the works of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) who painted more than 2000 paintings during the last 10 years of his life, now scattered throughout the world. On the 7000 m² of the Carrières, this new visual and sound creation retraces the intense life of the artist fascinated by the warm and colourful colours of Provence.

The clouds, suns and portraits of Van Gogh's greatest masterpieces come to life on walls more than 15 metres high and reveal the artist's unique style. The exhibition evokes Van Gogh's oversized, chaotic and poetic inner world through his most emblematic paintings, from the Starry Night (1889) to the Sunflowers (1888) and his famous Bedroom painted in Arles in 1889.

Travel through the different stages of his life and travel through his early works to his sunny landscapes and southern nightlife that revealed the artist we know today.

The visual and musical creation produced by Culturespaces and directed by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto and Massimiliano Siccardi, highlights the chromatic richness of Van Gogh's greatest masterpieces, set in motion thanks to the advanced technical equipment AMIEX®.
