The first digital art museum in Paris L’Atelier des Lumières opens with a #Klimt exhibition


The museum is in a former foundry and is operated by Culturespaces, a French museum foundation that specialise in immersive art displays. This is the opening exhibition at what Culturespaces calls its “Workshop of Lights”, and its larger space, La Halle, is dedicated to Gustav Klimt and a century of Viennese painting. There are also works by Egon Schiele and Friedrich Stowasser, better-known as Hundertwasser. — The Guardian

The museum foundation Culturespaces recently opened Paris’s first digital museum of fine art, Atelier des Lumières, with an opening exhibition displaying works by Gustav Klimt. The former foundry has been transformed into an immersive, multi-sensory space expanding artworks across the entire architectural interior.

The museum utilizes 140 laser video projectors to display works across 32-foot-high walls and over 11,000 square feet of surface area within the renovated 19th-century building. With the growing digital engagement of culture, the museum aims to disseminate art through relevant methods for future generations.
