The Great Modernists

The Revolution in Art displayed in HD and Dolby Surround. The Great Modernists is a new, spectacular, globally recognised multimedia show. The exhibition presents the works of 16 most reputable masters of modernism- Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Henri Rousseau, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Gustav Klimt, Paul Signac, Pete Mondrian, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre Auguste Renoir, Juan Gris, Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky and Kazimir Malevich. You will witness 5,000 works from more than 20 museums from all over the world in a unique combination of animated video projections accompanied by exquisite musical setting.

The Great Modernists has already blown away audience in Belin, Paris, Moscow and Tokyo. And now, for the first time, in Riga.

The exhibition itself is a media experience, which represents paintings of outstanding artists and enables the viewer to make a journey into the world of art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when culture and society were experiencing an unusual flurry of global events. At that time these great artists created a real revolution in art, discovering an almost inexhaustible source of sense where tradition sees only chaos and nonsense. Their pictures contain infinite riddles for the eye, immersing the audience in a labyrinth of unexpected contrasts and bright, unforgettable emotions. Today, with the help of digital technologies, these paintings find a new life and meaning. The exhibition is a place where one is transported to a different land, immersed in the work of geniuses like Van Gogh, Monet, Edgar Degas and more - surrounded by a spectacle of light and sound. Simply put, a journey into the world of art aided by technology, a journey that is enlightening, emotional and awe-inspiring, giving you entirely new perspectives on art that you never thought existed.

This multimedia exhibition is brought to you by the visionary people of “Digital Art House“ (www.digitalarthouse.eu) - This projects was devoted using technologies that blend multimedia, cinema and interactive techniques: a fusion that makes it possible for a canvas to come to live in the most amazing way.
