Off the back of its dazzling debut exhibition dedicated to the works of Van Gogh, digital art gallery The Lume is gearing up to launch its second dynamic art experience, this time deep-diving into the French Impressionist era.

Kicking off Wednesday, October 26, Monet & Friends Alive invites visitors back in time to 19th-Century Paris, celebrating the famous works of Impressionist icons from Monet to Renoir, and Cézanne to Manet.

As with its predecessor, the multi-sensory exhibition will display its artworks via supersized projections splashed across its sprawling surfaces, and paired with a curation of tastes, aromas and sounds. Here, that means you'll be able to wander over a bridge and right into a recreation of Monet's famed 1899 work, Bridge Over a Pond of Water Lilies. Other interactive experiences will include a studio space where visitors can have a go at creating their own replicas of Monet's best-known paintings.

Further tapping into the French bohemian spirit will be The Lume's own take on a 19th-Century Parisian cafe, Cafe Lumiere, which will be serving up a menu of small bites, share plates and desserts to enjoy after your artistic adventures.

'Monet & Friends Alive' will launch on October 26, with tickets available from August 26. Head to the website for more details.
