Gustav Klimt's life, his figurative works and his landscapes along with his painting and architecture, applied arts, design and the fashion of the Vienna Secession of the Late 1800s-Early 1900s: these are all the absolute protagonists of a totally multisensory excursus of images, sounds, music and sensations at MUDEC in Milan from July 26th, 2017 to January 7th, 2018 that portray the pictorial, cultural and social universe in which the Austrian symbolist painter Klimt lived, worked and was much esteemed.

This extraordinary multimedia exhibition aims to offer the visitor a new way of appreciating Klimt’s artworks through the ever-expanding potential of exciting innovative technologies. In one distinct ‘experience-room’ the visitor will be astounded by the interactive immersion seamlessly involving all the available space; from the walls to the ceiling to the floor, the images of the artist’s artworks become a single flow of dreams, of fluid and dematerialized forms in the evocative motifs of Klimt's art, from the first to the last paintings.

Seven hundred oeuvres, for a complete overview of the artist's production, works that would have otherwise been impossible to admire in a single exhibition scenario. A symbolic, enigmatic and sensual universe skilfully reproduced with exceptional visual impact thanks to the state-of-the-art Matrix X-Dimension system, designed exclusively for this video installation; it utilizes 30 laser projectors that transmit more than 40 million pixels over the mega screens, ensuring a definition greater than Full HD.
Alongside Klimt's art, visitors will also be able to admire vintage photographs of the artist's life and 3D reconstructions of Vienna in the early 1900s, with iconic locations, customs and the fashions of a European capital in an age of cultural ferment, comprising its innovative architecture such as the Secession Building in Vienna featuring its magnificent Beethoven frieze. This is the socio-cultural context in which Klimt lived and nurtured his creativity, an essential key to understanding the author’s poetics.

The music of Strauss, Mozart, Wagner, Lehár, Beethoven, Bach, Orff and Webern will accompany the visitor with an intriguing soundtrack to corroborate the important influence music had on the work of this great artist. Last but not least, the cultural experience will also present a didactic introductive area fitted with multimedia educational touch screen tables for an immersive virtual reality experience inside the most famous of Gustav Klimt’s masterpieces.
