A Gustav Klimt Immersive Experience Is Making Its Rounds This Summer

February 27, 2022 Share

New York City is getting a permanent immersive exhibition space, with a debut show dedicated to none other than Gustav Klimt.

Who remembers, The Kiss? Composed of a man and woman locked in an eternal embrace upon a bed of flowers, it’s one of the most iconic art nouveau paintings and arguably one of the most romantic. 

Painted by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt “at the height of his Golden Period, it contains many signatures: heavy symbolism, erotic undertones, and decorative aesthetics of gold leaf, platinum, and silver,” describes Afar.

Do you remember way back in 2016 when Oprah Winfrey sold Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer II (1912) for an earth-shattering $150 million? Yep, that’s him.

Just like the Van Gogh immersive experience where art lovers and enthusiasts alike get to walk through a projected version of his starry nights physically, we can now walk into a building that aims to make this experience concrete.

It was created by the same partnership between Exhibition Hub and Fever that brought the Van Gogh: The Immersive life experience – instead, this time comes Klimt: The Immersive Experience

Now Klimt fans can experience The Kiss and other works like Judith and the Head of Holofernes at three different immersive digital art experiences in 13 cities across North America in 2022.

Venues include Los Angeles, Las Vegas, London, Atlanta, New York and more.
