TORONTO, ON, Ocotbert 22, 2021 – Mayor John Tory and Consul General of France, Tudor Alexis were on hand yesterday evening to celebrate and announce Beyond Monet will extend its run in Toronto to February 6, 2022. Canada’s largest immersive experience ever continues to astound audiences with its exquisitely designed projections that cover the massive space’s walls and ceilings.
“Throughout the pandemic arts and culture have helped give us continued hope and beauty. Many organizations adapted to the pandemic and created new opportunities for people to safely keep experiencing arts and culture in our city. The Beyond Monet exhibit is an excellent example of how art and artists have adapted and delivered new experiences for Torontonians. I want to thank everyone involved in bringing this exhibit to life and for extending it into the new year. This is great news for Toronto residents and for all those who will be able to visit this remarkable art installation over the coming weeks,” said Mayor John Tory.
Book a yoga class at Beyond Monet
Along with the extension guests will now be able to book tickets for weekly yoga classes hosted by expert instructors from Downward Dog Yoga Centre inside the magical immersive space. Guests will also be able to enjoy refreshments onsite at the newly added Collective Arts Brewery cafe onsite.
The Garden Gallery invites guests to learn more about Monet’s inspiration and his lifelong pursuits before they are guided through the Prism, a tunnel filled with crystal-like shapes moving them into the final destination, The Infinity Room. The space is filled with mirrored floor pods, and transports guests from one masterpiece to another accompanied by an original score – completely surrounding them in a world envisioned by Claude Monet.
“I am elated that through Beyond Monet, Toronto plays host to one of France’s most famous artists, the pioneer of Impressionism, Claude Monet. Immersive art seeks to reimagine the future, the temporality of space and the perceptive experience to push the borders between art and reality. These exhibitions also democratize the accessibility of art, a constant concern for countries like France and Canada where inclusion and solidarity are of prime importance,” said Mr. Tudor Alexis, Consul General of France
