A multimedia exhibition featuring some of Europe's most renowned classical modernist painters is coming to Bangkok.
Titled "From Monet to Kandinsky. Visions Alive," the exhibit debuted in Berlin to high acclaim in 2017. Now, with assistance from over 20 of the world's finest museums, more than 1,500 pieces will be brought to life in a grand display at River City Bangkok from Apr 26-Jun 16.
The showcase promises a riveting, immersive experience featuring state-of-the-art HD projection, animation and striking surround sound, featuring the works of 16 prolific artists including Degas, Modigliani, Mondrian, Monet, Rousseau, Renoir, Kandinsky and van Gogh to name a few.
Expect to be taken on a journey into the late 19th and early 20th century art world, where the turbulent changes brought by the industrial revolution, the rise of technology, political upheavals and wars were captured in expressionist, abstract and surrealist forms.
On top of the exhibition itself, there will be talks by scholars of European art, supported by the European Union, as well as the opportunity to try your own hand at painting while sipping on wine.
River City has announced early-bird tickets will go on sale from Mar 15-Apr 20 at a discounted price at B300 via Zipevent. Regular tickets will then rise to B350 and B200 for children.
Art lovers can also buy a B500 ticket twinned with River City's future event, "Italian Renaissance," that will happen will start in August.
