Gustav Klimt in ‘La Halle’: an immersive exhibition

June 19, 2018

In the spring of 2018, Bruno Monnier, President of Culturespaces, announced the opening of the first Digital Art Centre in Paris called the Atelier des Lumières. Using 120 video projectors and a spatialised sound system, the multimedia equipment covers a total surface area of 3,300 m2, extending from the floors to the ceilings and over walls up to ten metres high.

Its opening in April 13, 2018 boasted an immersive exhibition featuring the main figures in the Viennese art scene, in which Gustav Klimt played a key role. To mark his hundredth death anniversary, his works are being brought to life in a breathtaking tribute curated by Culturespaces’ Cultural Programming and Exhibitions appointed director, Beatrice Avanzi. 

The sequence opens with a projection of the neoclassical Vienna, Kilmt and the Vienna Secession, Klimt’s use of gold and his vision of nature, followed by a glimpse of Egon Schiele’s works as influenced by Klimt. The scene afterwards sweeps into Klimt’s images of women, as the sequence closes.

The exhibition ends on November 11, 2018. For more info, visit the website.
