Gustav Klimt Digital exhibition – in Paris, until November 11, 2018
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.
Organizers say the gallery is the biggest of its kind in the world. It has 140 fixed video projectors and 50 speakers installed across a 3,300 square-meter building, extending from the floors to the ceilings and over walls up to ten metres high.
The new exhibition at the Atelier des Lumieres 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.
