Tonight with the Impressionists

Tonight with the Impressionists at Musée d’Orsay in Paris offers a unique virtual reality experience where visitors walk through a recreated 1874 exhibition by Monet, Renoir, and other Impressionist artists. Despite visually stunning details with no frame rate drops, the experience suffers from the awkwardness of navigating non-existent physical spaces and constant collisions with other virtual visitors. The focus on immersive walking might have aimed to enhance the experience, but it ultimately leads to stress and discomfort. While other hybrid art experiences using projections show promise, Tonight with the Impressionists fails to deliver on the potential of virtual reality in appreciating art.
