DUBAI, UAE – With over 130 projectors, 58 speakers and 3,000 HD digital moving images, Infinity Des Lumières is the largest digital art center in Dubai. 

Inaugurated by Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the chairperson of Dubai Culture & Arts Authority, last summer, Infinity des Lumières represents a new age of digital art in Dubai. 

Infinity des Lumières consists of three exhibits including, Van Gogh, Verse and Dreamed Japan. 

The Van Gogh exhibition offers a new multi-sensory way of experiencing famous artworks by post-Impressionist painter, Vincent Van Gogh. Some of his famous artworks such as, “The Starry Night,” “Sunflowers” and “Bedroom at Arles” as well as several of his self portraits are projected on the walls and floors of the exhibition. 

Dreamed Japan is another exhibit that displays the work of 19th century Japanese painter, Hokusai. Through the use of light and sound, the exhibition makes the artwork come to life. 

The last exhibition located in the contemporary room at the back of the hall projects the work of French filmmaker and contemporary visual artist, Thomas Vanz.

Infinity des Lumières is located on the second floor of The Dubai Mall and is open every day starting at 10 a.m. On Tuesdays, the exhibition is open to ladies only and tickets are at AED 125.
