For many people just being inside a WWII submarine is an experience deemed unforgettable; add to that the arts of the world and this place becomes unparalleled and a gem for art connoisseurs and people who love experiencing novel sites. Art lovers will find this irresistible and those who aren’t big on art will find it interesting as the watersheds of Bordeaux’s 78-year-old submarine base are set for transformation into immersive art galleries, as they re-open as the Les Bassins de Lumières centre for digital art. The place has already hosted a couple of concerts and shows but now four of its sheds will become permanent exhibition spaces. One look at the pictures and you will find the enormous spaces of the WWII bunker used to its maximum capacity what with digital art installations splashed across the venue’s walls and reflected in the water of its enormous basins.
Les Bassins de Lumières (The Ponds of Lights) is planning to open its gates on n April 17, 2020. France’s leading museum and exhibition operating studio, Culturespaces is responsible for this feat coming together. Culturespaces will also devote its main exhibition spaces at bassins de lumières to iconic artists in art history, such as Gustav Klimt and Paul Klee.
