This for­mer lime­stone quarry, opened in 1800, is now the most beau­ti­ful art gallery, a multimedia de­light us­ing the huge ver­ti­cal walls as a back­drop. From now un­til 6 Jan­uary, 2019, the lime­stone walls will come to life with Pi­casso and the Span­ish Mas­ters, a cen­tury of Span­ish art pre­sented in a re­mark­able sound and light show cre­ated by Gian­franco Ian­nuzzi, Re­nato Gatto and Mas­si­m­il­iano Sic­cardi and pro­duced by Cul­tures­paces, us­ing thou­sands of im­ages and a hun­dred pro­jec­tors. The first part of the show high­lights por­traits and scenes of daily life painted by Goya, Rusiñol, Zu­loaga and Sorolla. The se­cond part fo­cuses on Pi­casso, who was un­ques­tion­ably one of the most in­flu­en­tial great mas­ters in 20th cen­tury art. From the royal court to Goya’s rus­tic scenes, Rusiñol’s en­chant­ing gar­dens, Zu­loaga’s por­traits, and Sorolla’s lu­mi­nous beach scenes, vis­i­tors are in­vited to go on a jour­ney of dis­cov­ery and then im­merse them­selves in the rich and cap­ti­vat­ing pic­to­rial world of Pi­casso and his mas­ter­piece. The dis­tinc­tive forms of the De­moi­selles d’Avi­gnon (1907), the sooth­ing pink and blue of The Pipes of Pan (1923), the men­ac­ing po­tency of Guer­nica (1937), and the Mediter­ranean shores of The Joy of Life (1946) take the view­ers into the heart of the artist’s creative ge­nius. car­ri­eres-lu­mieres.com/en
