Bassins de Lumieres -- Pools of Light -- Immersive Art Experience Coming Soon to Bordeaux
Imagine walking through an immersive digital art experience that rises almost 40 feet high and stretches 3,280 feet in width.
Located in a former WWII submarine base the Bassins de Lumieres (Pools of Lights) is one of the world's largest multimedia installations.
It's due to open spring, 2020.
The digital exhibitions have been specifically adapted to the monumental architecture of the submarine base. Visitors will be able to wander around the site and cross the walkways over the basins that lead to the
enormous quays, providing a highly unusual visual and aural perspective. The play of reflections in the water will create a floating and dreamlike sensation.
The installations focus on the major artists in art history and contemporary art.
Exhibitions will be presented in two spaces. These will not be art hanging on the walls. Instead visitors will see continuously cycled digital projections. One will be devoted to the major figures
in the history of art, and another shorter one will focus on more contemporary art.

Gustav Klimt exhibition will be the first one presented for the long program. Paul Klee, a new exhibition created specifically for the Bassins de Lumieres will be the shorter art experience.
Klimt was Austrian born and celebrated the beauty of women. His most famous paintings of his golden phase often included gold leaf. His style was influenced by Japanese art.
Swiss-born artist Klee's distinctive style incorporates elements of Expressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism.
