L’Atelier des Lumières has attracted more than a million paying visitors since its opening in AprilDue to its success, the closing date for the exhibit moved from November 11, 2018 to January 6, 2019. 

The digital exhibition dedicated to the Austrian artist Gustav Klimt in Paris claims to be the biggest video projection gallery in the world, with 140 projectors and 50 speakers to flood the walls and floors of the 3,300 square-meter space with the Viennese master’s work on a 35-minute loop.

The former Parisian foundry transformed into a digital art center has been filled with many people, the majority of whom bought the tickets online. A big success for Foundation Louis Vuitton.

The work of art nouveau painter Gustav Klimt is being brought to life by digital technology in Paris. In an amazing experience for Art Nouveau lovers, visitors can walk into and over paintings projected around a warehouse in a 35 minute moving sequence.

The exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières or Studio of Lights in Paris, close to Père Lachaise Cemetery, allows people to be immersed in the Austrian artist’s world a hundred years after his death.

This immersive exhibition takes an original look at the works of Klimt and his successors through a presentation of the portraits, landscapes, nudes, colours, and gilding that revolutionised Viennese painting at the end of the nineteenth century and in the century that followed.  It traces Klimt’s golden age, and the birth of the Viennese Secession.
