From the Monet & Friends experience to yoga and private events, there’s always so much to see and do for all ages at THE LUME Melbourne.
AN EPIC ADVENTURE INTO FRENCH IMPRESSIONISM
Step into a vast new world as THE LUME Melbourne celebrates the legendary works of Monet and the French Impressionists. Ready to delight each of your senses, the Impressionists’ incredible works are brought to life as epic-scale masterpieces four-storeys high are woven together with stunning musical soundscapes, evocative aromas, and perfectly curated menu at Café de Flore.
You’ve surely seen the Impressionists’ art before. From Monet’s Woman with a Parasol and The Artist’s Garden, to Degas’ The Ballet Class, their works are some of the most instantly recognisable and celebrated in history.
But we are certain you’ve never experienced Impressionism like this.
Featurettes: THE LUME Digital arts program
Following the feature presentation, a selection of short featurettes will showcase work from THE LUME Digital Arts Program. The Program aims to foster and celebrate the talent of established and emerging digital media artists in Australia by providing a highly visible, powerful showcase on the world stage.
Select artists and collectives are invited to create a short piece showcasing original digital art. Each piece will be rewarded financially and given a truly unique exposure opportunity. The three current featurettes that accompany the Monet & Friends experience at THE LUME Melbourne are detailed below:
AUSTRALIAN CLOUD ATLAS
by Grayson Cooke & Dugal McKinnon
This project uses spectacular satellite images of clouds to highlight the importance of clouds to climate. Rendering images using both visible and infrared light, the project visualises parts of the atmosphere that are invisible to the human eye. It is a unique combination of art, science and the Earth, showing how now more than ever, it is crucial that we all have our heads in the clouds.

by Nature as Data (James McGrath & Gary Sinclair)
Created by visualising and sonifying massive data-sets, Ghost Trees brings to life the endangered Rushworth Forest, (Victoria, Australia) in the lands of the Ngurai-illam-wurrung people. These data-sets are ephemeral yet fixed recordings of dying ecosystems; digital memories of disappearing landscapes, echoes of our lost environment. We take the viewpoint of someone within the landscape and from within the limbs of the trees - we become part of the organism. Location recordings are studied and processed to reveal the musicality of the forest and its inhabitants. Melodic elements are generated from spatial data points - the forest is singing.

Swim through underwater aquatic worlds into deep dark forests inhabited by abstract plants and animals, all timed to the mysterious ambient soundscapes of GMJ and Matter.
