This past week, Jack attended the Gustav Klimt exhibition, Gold in Motion, and wanted to encourage others to encounter the breathtaking experience.
The exhibition Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion, located at The Hall des Lumières, is separated into six different sequences looking at the history and impact of the revolutionary artist. 30-foot-high luminous shifting projections of Gustav Klimt's art dance throughout the building's architecture, accompanied by a tailor-made musical soundtrack. Gustav Klimt was an Austrian artist known for his symbolism and his patronage of Art Nouveau in Vienna. He would use actual gold leaf in his paintings, which centered largely around women and their sexuality to promote innovation in contemporary art.
The location of the Exhibit, IHall des Lumières, has the renovated teller hall and vault of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank. This was one of the first skyscrapers in Manhattan to be built in the highly decorative Beaux Art Style. The beauty of the architecture gracefully accompanies the breathtaking projections of Klimt's work.
Don't miss your opportunity to see Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion!
