There's only a few days left to see Montreal's mesmerizing Monet exhibit

Mar 24 2022, 7:59 pm

Now is your last chance to check out Montreal’s interactive Claude Monet exhibition.

Imagine Monet, a premiere exhibition of the works of the French painter and founder of impressionism, has been immersing visitors at the Arsenal Contemporary Art since its launch in December, and the program has been extended to April 10 due to its massive success.

Akin to the Imagine Van Gogh exhibition before the pandemic, the Monet exhibit displays more than 200 by from the artist through a projector, giant murals, and an immersive soundtrack.

The event explores works from the mid-1800s to the early 1900s and immerses “the viewer in the heart of the works painted by the artist, particularly in France,” says the Arsenal Contemporary Art’s event listing.

“Monet wanted to capture the fleeting nature of the light reflected on the landscape, on people and things,” says the exhibition. “In his rapid execution in the open air and the resulting dissolution of form, he went against the academicism of the time and created colourful environments that could be considered the first immersive works in the history of Modern Art.”

Created by Annabelle Mauger, Julien Baron, and art historian Androula Michael, Imagine Monet features art painting projections created by Monet, including the series of “Cathedrals” and the “Water Lilies” from his garden in Giverny.

Admission to Imagine Monet is a timed entry and must be booked online, tickets are not available on-site.

Admission is $26 for a single pass, $93 for family passes, and $19.99 for package deals (10 or more).
