About Beyond Monet
Beyond Monet allows guests a glimpse into the emotions and perspectives of the leading figure of Impressionism, Claude Monet while they enter the Garden Gallery. The Prism then transports visitors into the biggest feature area of the exhibit. Taking inspiration from Musée de l'Orangerie in Paris , the designated home of Monet’s master pieces, guests can freely roam the Infinity Room, an oval-shaped space, to absorb the artist’s bright and colourful paintings the way it was intended.
Monet’s stunning imagery encompasses every surface of the room, from floor to ceiling, immersing the guests inside the paintings themselves. It is a haven for awakening the senses as the ebb and flow of the artwork is accompanied by the rhythm of an original score.
"This exhibition is beyond anything you've seen. It is a truly multi-sensory immersive experience that offers guests a dreamlike romantic journey through Monet's world of masterpieces," says Jeffrey Latimer, Producing Partner, JL Entertainment. "Sharing this unique spectacle with Canadians for its world premiere is quite an honour for us."
Beyond Monet was developed by Montreal's Normal Studio and took over 10,000 hours to be created. The immersive exhibit weaves Claude Monet's own words throughout the installation with quotes and excerpts.
The first room acts as an educational guide, with Monet's works hung from the ceiling on strips of fabric and information about his art alongside them.
Throughout the room, there are bridges you can walk over, and placed underneath them are reflective circles that mimic water, allowing you to peer below and view an inverted version of the exhibit.
To get to the final immersive room, you have to walk through a tunnel of light.
