Gustav Klimt’s Nights Returns to Atelier des Lumières This Summer
In 2018 a stunning exhibit featuring Gustav Klimt at Paris’ Atelier des Lumières drew over 1 million visitors in just nine months. So in response to the high demand, this summer the Klimt’s Nights exhibition will re-open for 26 exceptional nights. From August 1 to 24, and October 29 to November 9 between 6 and 9:30 pm discover the magnificent digital art experience at the Atelier des Lumières. Created by artists Gianafranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimillano Siccardi, this digital exhibition is a must-see if you’re in Paris!
Gustav Klimt’s most pivotal work will be displayed in a magnificent array of lights and colors splashed on walls through digital technology. Some of the most famous elements of the Austrian painter’s masterpieces will be presented during a 30-minute light show. The project evolves around six scenes lasting five minutes each.
Klimt’s night-time exhibition goes through 100 years of Viennese paintings showcasing the works of the painter, his contemporaries and those he inspired. The immersive exhibition also includes the works that made Klimt so famous—his ‘golden period’, portraits, and landscapes.
Creation of the Exhibition
The work projects on the walls of the gallery, thanks to 140 projectors throughout the space. Generated by artificial intelligence, forms, lights, and movements compose a unique and contemplative digital work. All in all, over 3,000 moving pictures create a show of sound and light lasting for 30 minutes.
