What to Expect at the Infinity Des Lumieres in The Dubai Mall

So what can people expect when they enter this place? Visitors can enjoy a fully immersive artwork experience with lights, sounds, and visuals. Art moves in every direction and you can sit, walk, and explore the huge gallery.

The museum has an area of over 2,700 square meters. It is equipped with over 130 projectors, 58 speakers, and 3000 high-definition images all pieced together in this digital masterpiece.

The museum staff was very accommodating. Upon our entry, they walked us to an area featuring the exhibit so we would know what’s in store for us.

Vincent Van Gogh Exhibit in Dubai

Vincent Van Gogh’s exhibit features an exciting movement of Vincent Van Gogh’s famous masterpieces. The artwork is displayed all around the center and you get to explore, move around, and embrace the evolution of Van Gogh’s art and life.

It’s really cool to witness classic art pieces in this digital format and you get to sense the artist’s vision and feeling when you witness his art in this medium.

Here are some pictures of the Van Gogh digital art exhibit.

Dreamed Japan Exhibit in Dubai

Dreamed Japan exhibit is shorter compare to Van Gogh, but it’s very colorful. This is an imaginative art immersion where you can witness the world of Japan during the 19th century. There are Japanese portraits, landscapes, and seascapes in a dreamlike sequence.

It’s a world of floating images featuring samurais and geishas, sea creatures, flying lanterns, falling Cherry Blossoms, and the iconic Japan waves (really recommended!). The presentation is powerful and vivid. This was my favorite among the exhibits.

Verse Exhibit in Dubai

Summary

I am still learning to appreciate paintings and art. The team behind Infinity Des Lumieres made this experience enjoyable because of their creative imagination and presentation.

I also like the idea that this art exhibit is located right in the mall as it makes art very accessible and convenient for visitors to drop by. The place is very spacious and you can take your time here, much like a museum. So in our case, we spent at least 2 hours inside (the overall exhibit runs for 1 hour).

Be advised that the time duration may vary depending on the number of people inside. Due to safety precautions, the number of visitors entering the exhibit is controlled. During our visit, there was ample space available so we were not asked to leave after our 1 hour was up.

Overall, I would recommend this for a memorable sensory experience admiring art and the modern way it is being brought to us.
