An immersive “digital art experience” is coming to the restored ornate hall of the former 1912 Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank, an interior landmark at 49 Chambers St. “Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion” opens this summer in the space, now called Hall des Lumières. The exhibit features animated depictions of Klimt's paintings, synchronized to a musical soundtrack in what organizers term a “multi-sensory celebration” of the work. The imagery will appear on nearly every surface of the room, its marble columns, stained glass windows, sculptures, ceilings and more.

Our unique, cutting-edge mapping technology, elegant soundtrack and historic location transport you to a world of gold and color,” announced Culturespaces, creators of the exhibit and other such multi-media shows in Paris and elsewhere. Go here for more information.
