Imagine Picasso, 
the Exclusive Immersive Exhibition
in Image Totale©

The very first art immersive exhibition was invented in 1977 by Albert Plécy, a French photographer, in Les Baux-de-Provence, South of France. He transformed there a former underground quarry into an immersive venue named Cathédrale d’Images. The visitors were fully immersed in the paintings’ screenings through his new technique of Image Totale©.

 

In 2001, Annabelle Mauger joined the creative team and created the first Van Gogh immersive exhibition. After a huge success in Cathédrale d’Images, the show was presented in 2011 at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore. The creation was then copied and various digital Van Gogh exhibitions toured around the world. In 2017, Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron presented in Halle de La Villette in Paris a new upgraded version in Image Totale©: Imagine Van Gogh.

 

In Autumn 2019, Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron created a new exhibition in Image Totale©  dedicated to the Modern Art Master : Pablo Picasso. This exclusive immersive exhibition  was made with the cooporation of Picasso estate.

Imagine Picasso is a unique experience, a waking dream through the work of one of the greatest artist in the world.

Imagine Picasso is the original and unique show in Image Totale©.

No add-on, no antics.
The creators respect all of the original artworks.

Imagine
Picasso,
a unique cultural project

This exhibition is the work of Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, who collaborated on the creation of immersive shows at Cathédrale d’Images in France, using the concept of Image Totale© conceived by Albert Plécy. 

The public is invited to enter an immersive space where Picasso’s work is in dialogue with the visitor. Choosing their own route in close proximity to the art, visitors can feel the power of the artist’s work.

This artistic approach in Image Totale©  immerses the viewer in the heart of the paintings to explore the details. More than 200 of Picasso’s works are projected in Image Totale©  .The works are unleashed from their frames to inhabit the space in a continuous flow.

 

Plunged into darkness, guided only by the light of the works, everyone experiences the exhibition in a different way. Free to choose their own path, visitors become participants, who can take as long as they like to gaze in any direction and immerse themselves in Picasso’s work.

 

The projection is accompanied by music from Picasso’s contemporaries, Satie and Ravel, and also contemporary composers. The music enhances the immersive experience and adds a new dimension that opens the way for dreaming and contemplation.
