Grand Palais Immersif moves to the Opéra Bastille

Grand Palais Immersif is a subsidiary of the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais dedicated to the production of digital, immersive and innovative exhibitions. Its goal: to make art accessible to the greatest number, by exploiting digital innovation in all its forms.

The digital exhibitions developed by Grand Palais Immersif and its partners aim to provide an artistic experience, and explain a work, artist or movement, by offering a viewpoint and keys to understanding, arousing emotions whilst remaining scientifically based.

This new exhibition format brings audiovisual, narrative, interactive and immersive content together in a space the public can freely explore.

Currently undergoing works, the Grand Palais in Paris will hold Grand Palais Immersif exhibitions in dedicated galleries when it reopens. Several locations in France and abroad will also host these projects starting in 2022.

Two major cultural institutions, the Opéra national de Paris and the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais via its Grand Palais Immersif subsidiary, have signed an agreement to create a new location reserved for digital exhibitions in Paris starting in September 2022. 

In part of the “modular hall” of the Opéra Bastille, Grand Palais Immersif will hold two immersive exhibitions a year, offering a rich experience for visitors. The space, which is being designed by Fréderic Druot, will be accessible by an entrance on rue de Lyon, Paris 12e. The design of the exhibitions and the management of the premises will be the responsibility of Grand Palais Immersif.

The first exhibition to be held in 2022 will be Venise Révélée. The exhibition is a coproduction with the Musei di Civici in Venice and Iconem. Thanks to the digitalisation and 3-D modelling of Venice – done by Iconem in collaboration with the  Fondazione civici di Venezia – the visitor will be plunged into the heart of the city of the Doges, designed like a sumptuous theatre set. The visitor will discover palaces, the Grand Canal, the challenges of its natural environment, and its unique construction. This immersion will give the visitor the chance to understand its history and its artistic heritage. Breath-taking images created by innovative technology, accompanied by a unique musical composition, will astound visitors as they explore the city.

Until 21 August 2022 Grand Palais Immersif is holding The Mona Lisa, an immersive exhibition, a coproduction with the Louvre, at the Palais de la Bourse in Marseille.

Currently undergoing works, the Grand Palais in Paris will hold Grand Palais Immersif exhibitions in dedicated galleries when it reopens. Several locations in France and abroad will also host these projects starting in 2022.
