There’s a chill in the air and the days are getting shorter which means only one thing – Autumn has arrived! It’s this time of year when we really enjoy scouting out the best exhibitions to visit while ducking out of the cold and warming up with some creativity. Which ones will you be visiting?

Van Gogh, La nuit étoilée
Where: Atelier des Lumières, 38 Rue Saint-Maur, 75011 Paris When: Februray 22 to December 31 2019
The new digital exhibition in the Atelier des Lumières immerses visitors in the paintings of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), a genius who’s work radically evolved over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888) and Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom at Arles (1889). The Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brushstrokes and is illuminated by the bold colours of his unique paintings. The immersive exhibition evokes van Gogh’s highly emotional, chaotic, and poetic inner world and highlights the constant interplay of light and shade. Find out more here.
