Living at the speed of light
Impressionist instants towards abstraction

The exhibition “Living at the speed of light. Impressionist instants towards abstraction”, have revisited works of the French Impressionism movement in a new way: the closer you get, the more innovative it is. Visitors had the chance to enjoy, in close detail and through fresh storytelling, Impressionist masters and mistresses, such as Monet, Renoir, Cassat, Morrisot, Degas, among others.

In collaboration with Réunion National des Musées – Grand Palais and Institut Français.

List of works:

  • “Jeune fille au jardin” by Mary Cassatt
  • “Danseuses montant un escalier” by Edgar Degas
  • “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” by Édouard Manet
  • “La gare Saint-Lazare” by Claude Monet
  • “Femme au jardin” by Berthe Morisot
  • “Bal du moulin de la Galette” by Auguste Renoir


These digital reproductions offer a unique experience to visitors:

  • an incredible quality and level of detail (better than the level of detail visible in the work to the naked eye)
  • they’re navigable (zoom, move around, etc.) and are enriched with additional multimedia information
  • they’re presented on large screens, connected to tablets devices for visitors to interact with.


The initiative seeks to explore the use of new technologies as a tool for:

  • making the world’s cultural and artistic heritage available to citizens from all over the globe
  • offering new ways to enjoy art, ways that are more interactive and immersive, and also more understandable for your audience
  • demonstrating new ways of exhibiting cultural heritage, aligned with the most innovative trends in this field
