A Flemish Master of Light and Colour
The unique exhibition "Van Eyck: An Optical Revolution" can easily be called an overwhelming success. Hundreds of thousands of people came to our city in the Scheldt to experience this "once in a lifetime" event. To all the activities surrounding the creator of the Mystic Lamb, another spectacular part is now added: Lights On Van Eyck.
Lights On Van Eyck is an overwhelming light and sound spectacle in St Nicholas' Church in Ghent, from 28 March to 1 November 2020. It is a very accessible way to discover the work of one of Flanders' greatest artists. Van Eyck's work is celebrated in a dazzling mix of multimedia, music and projection. Projections on all the walls and vaults of the church shroud the entire building in beauty, British artist Mat Collishaw brings a digital interpretation of the Mystic Lamb on four large dancing robot arms and regular live concerts complete the picture.
