Atelier des Lumières Marks Opening with Gustav Klimt

To mark its opening, the Atelier des Lumières will present an immersive exhibition devoted to the main figures in the Viennese art scene, of which Gustav Klimt was a key figure. To mark the hundredth anniversary of the painter’s death, and that of Egon Schiele, their works will be brought to life to the sound of music.

The venue, Paris‘s new “studio of lights” is housed in a former foundry with a 16,000-square-foot exhibition hall. Using 140 laser video projectors and a spatialized sound system, the space in the eternal city’s 11th arrondissement transforms artists’ biographies and work into immersive technicolor shows.

The immersive exhibition includes the works that typify Klimt’s work and made him so famous—his ‘golden period’, portraits, and landscapes.

The showcase will also present works by major Viennese artists such as Egon Schiele and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, who were influenced by Klimt’s work. Influenced by the artistic effervescence of the end of the nineteenth century, Schiele advocated a new form of representing landscapes and the human body. Hundertwasser, who would have been 90 in 2018, infused his architectural structures and paintings with a symbolic dimension.

Produced by Culturespaces and created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, with the musical collaboration of Luca Longobardi, this inaugural artistic programme invites visitors to immerse themselves in the colorful and luminous works of Gustav Klimt, works by his contemporaries, and those whom he inspired.

Taking visitors on a journey through one hundred years of Viennese painting, the 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.
