Since early summer, Gustav Klimt’s artworks of abstract strokes and sparkling gold have been celebrated on a huge scale right here in London. For the past few months, internationally successful Klimt: The Immersive Exhibition has welcomed the public to Brick Lane’s Truman Brewery, and due to its popularity, the exhibition had its dates extended. However, come November 27, the exhibition will move on to its next location – don’t miss out on your chance to see these pieces brought to life in a brand-new way.
Currently, The Boiler House (located at Truman Brewery) positively dazzles with floor-to-ceiling projections and virtual reality replicas of Klimt’s work, transporting guests from 2022 East London to early 1900s Vienna. The famed Kiss, The Tree of Life, and Judith and the Head of Holofernes are just some of the works that get the 360-degree treatment, enabling you to get a closer look at every brushstroke and see the models in greater detail as Klimt himself would have seen them. Even the most staunch Klimt fans can discover elements for the first time.
Klimt: The Immersive Exhibition has previously appeared in cities such as Brussels, Barcelona and Miami; and here in London, it transforms the space at The Boiler House. If you’re not familiar with the East End venue, let us get you up to speed. While the original architecture of the building – which was once London’s largest brewery – has largely been kept the same, the interior is now a thriving arts and events hub, with independent businesses, restaurants, bars, shops, markets and more.
Part multi-sensory, part-virtual reality, the immersive exhibition doesn’t only offer a look at the Austrian artist’s work, but you’re also able to get an exclusive insight into what a day in his life was like too, using VR glasses. There are also separate galleries that chronicle his life and influences.
Save yourself the hassle of last-minute planning, and book your ticket today. If you opt for a VIP ticket, you’ll even be able to skip the queues, get free entry to the VR experience, and even walk away with a memento of your visit…
