1. You’ll see his works from a brand-new perspective
Klimt fans, I’m sure you’ve seen his masterpieces displayed in books, online, and in art galleries many times over in the same mundane way. Klimt: The Immersive Experience takes these magnificent works and presents them like you’ve never seen before. With 360-degree projections of The Kiss, The Tree of Life, Judith and the Head of Holofernes, and more, you’ll be able to study every brushstroke and get up close to these depictions. We promise you’ll be in awe as these striking images completely surround you.
2. The epic VR experience
If being surrounded by Klimt’s artwork wasn’t enough, you can almost literally step into the artist’s shoes with the exhibition’s one-of-a-kind VR experience. Across 10 minutes, you’ll wander through a computer-generated world that will chronicle a day in the life of Gustav Klimt himself, and reveal the inspiration behind eight of his iconic works. Mind-bending stuff!
3. There are photo ops galore
Calling on all the modern day artists, whose medium is their phone camera: Klimt: The Immersive Experience is brimming with really cool photo opportunities that’ll brighten up your Instagram feed and your day.
