The work of an iconic Symbolist artist will be the subject of a massive digital exhibition in Toronto next month.
From the same creators behind the hugely popular Immersive Van Gogh, they have created a new exhibition showcasing the works of famous Austrian artists Gustav Klimt.
The Immersive Klimt Revolution installation will be shown in an abandoned five-story building in downtown Toronto.
Showcasing some of the artist’s famous works, this immersive experience will immerse visitors in the mind of one of the members of the Vienna Estate. The exhibition will take you through the journey of Klimt’s evolution as an artist, from thousands of sketches to his “golden phase”.
The Austrian painter became known for the highly decorative style and erotic subject matter of his work, which was seen as a rebellion against traditional art.
Lights, sounds and immersive digital art will come together to create this experience by Lighthouse Immersive.
Klimt’s work will encompass the entire 600,000 square foot warehouse, with work spanning all five floors.
“Our inspiration for this new exhibition has its origins in the spirit of rebellion of the time and in the contrast between classic and modern”, explains Massimiliano Siccardi, the creator of the exhibition.
Visitors will get lost in giant projections of iconic works by Gustav Klimt such as The Kiss, Portrait of Adèle Bloch-Bauer I, Flower Garden and Death and Life, to name a few.
Tickets for the show will go on sale from 10 a.m. this Saturday.
The exhibition runs from October 21 to November 28.
