He was the man who invented the art of the Light Set, a complex system of light projections that allows stage scenery to be given multiple variations of colours, lights and shapes while incorporating moving images. Eugène Frey (1863–1930), who previously worked with the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, is now the subject of a superb exhibition featuring 

Villa Paloma, exhibition. The Luminous Decors of Eugene Frey presented by João Maria Gusmão.

300 works on paper and over 100 glass plates by the painter. Inspired by Frey’s work, guest artist João Maria Gusmão has designed a scenographic installation of magic lanterns, offering visitors a “continuously lit micro-cinema” experience combining various animation techniques. An unmissable event.
