Klimt Experience in Shanghai

Date: Aug 18-Oct 13 - 10 am

The figures and landscapes of Klimt's art are the absolute protagonists of this immersive representation dedicated to the founding father of the Vienna Secession, who, together with other artists, cultivated the myth of the total work of art and the dream of a democratization of creativity and that which is beautiful. Works such as The Kiss, The Tree of Life, or Judith I, have become part of popular culture, but Klimt is still an artist about whom there is much to discover and, above all, to recount. This is the aim of the show: to entertain, intrigue and amaze a public young and old, inviting them to delve into the knowledge of the man and the artist, about his work and style, with the spectacular display of details and pictorial technique. Forty-five minutes in which images, lights, colors, music, and sound envelop the audience, bonding with the allure of the location. Thus a fusion of technology and architecture is achieved, capable of giving the illusion of being transported on an incredible journey through Klimt's work.
