Stepping into your favourite paintings has never been easier, with immersive exhibitions taking over London’s art scene. And, if you’re a fan of Gustav Klimt’s glorious paintings, then we have a real treat for you. The artist’s symbolist pieces will be heading to London next summer at an exciting exhibition, offering a 360-degree look at his famed artworks as they are brought to life on a huge scale.
Klimt: The Immersive Experience will bring a touch of 1900s Vienna glamour to the capital. The Austrian painter is best known for his enchanting gold-adorned paintings and elegant depictions of the female body, and you’ll have the chance to step right into these wondrous works – such as The Kiss, The Tree of Life, and Judith and the Head of Holofernes – with floor-to-ceiling digital projections, virtual reality glasses, and striking sound effects.
After roaring success in other big cities around the world, the exhibition will take over a 20,000-square-foot space here in London next July, chronicling Klimt’s life, techniques and influence, alongside his most compelling works. You’ll be able to scrutinise every brush stroke on the digital projections up close, or step back to observe how his style progressed over the years, before embarking on a one-of-a-kind virtual reality journey – a 10-minute experience that follows a day in the life of the artist himself.
The multi-sensory experience will make for a great day out with family, friends, or even a date, and will offer even the most revered art critic a new perspective on Klimt’s work.You’re sure to leave mesmerised and inspired.
