Located between Bastille and Nation, in a former foundry, Atelier des Lumières, the first digital art centre in Paris, holds monumental immersive exhibitions that make use of unique multimedia equipment. Klimt’s work sets the ball rolling!*
To mark its opening, Atelier des Lumières has created an immersive exhibition that is devoted to the main representatives of the Viennese art scene, of which Gustav Klimt was a key figure. On the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of the painter’s death, and that of Egon Schiele, their work has been brought to life to the sound of music and projected on to the former foundry’s immense surface areas. A small exhibition also focuses on the artist, Freidensreich Hundertwasser. Embark on a journey through one hundred years of painting. This exhibition takes an original look at the works of Klimt and his successors by presenting the portraits, landscapes, nudes, colours, and gilding that revolutionised Viennese painting at the end of the nineteenth century and in the century that followed.
These monumental exhibitions, which are tailor-made to fill the entire space in which they are held, involve lifting the artists’ work off the canvas and projecting it on to enormous surfaces in very high resolution using unparalleled digital equipment. Fully immersed in images and sound, go on an extraordinary sensory adventure that lets you see the greatest names in the history of art in a new light.
An experience that is unique in every way!
