Immersive Klimt opens in Toronto October 18
TORONTO, ON, September 30, 2021 – Running at Lighthouse Immersive from October 18 – November 28, Immersive Klimt is created by Italy’s Massimiliano Siccardi, the same world-famous master digital art master who created the hugely popular Immersive Van Gogh.
For 30 years Siccardi has been pioneering immersive exhibits in Europe. His Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit, held recently in Toronto and also produced by Lighthouse Immersive has been seen by over 3 million visitors in North America.
A rebel, genius and legend – Gustav Klimt explored and expressed colours, shapes and patterns without inhibition or limitation. And now you can wander right inside his electrifying world and be swept away!
Immersive Klimt features a half a million cubic feet of brilliant projections, 60,600 frames of video and 90 million pixels, combined with an incredibly mood driven and complementing soundscape, it is truly a wondrous immersive look into the creative genius of Klimt.
From the streets of Imperial Vienna to the natural world of water lilies, vibrant blooms and mermaids, to the late-19th-century Austrian artist’s acclaimed ‘Golden Phase.’ Which for this Modernist artist meant the addition of glittering gold leaf within some of his artworks. Immersive Klimt invites visitors to lose themselves in the vivid imagery and bold colours!
Klimt was part of the Art Nouveau movement in the early 1900s reflecting the vibrancy of city life, through flat decorative patterns, plant motifs and the female form.
The immersive digital journey will transport visitors through the evolution of Gustav Klimt as an artist. There will be thousands of hand-drawn sketches along with some of his master works including his most famous work, “The Kiss,” as well as “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer I,” and “The Tree of Life.”
Located at 1 Yonge Street, Lighthouse Immersive was founded in 2019 by Toronto-based producers, Corey Ross and Svetlana Dvoretsky and Toronto-based developer – Slava Zheleznyakov. Lighthouse Immersive is the first experiential entertainment multi-plex, aiming to cultivate community and creativity through large-scale events and exhibitions of all art forms.
