38 rue Saint-Maur - 75011 Paris

Père-Lachaise - Ménilmontant - 11e Arrondissement


A selection of works by Viennese master Gustav Klimt, and the impertinent Egon Schiele, is the inaugural exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières, the new cultural space in Paris’s 11th arrondissement, close to Père Lachaise Cemetery. This new venue, dedicated to displaying art digitally – the first of its kind – projects multiple masterpieces onto the walls and other surfaces of what was, in the 19th century, a foundry of more than 3,000 m². An immersive experience tracing Klimt’s golden age, and the birth of the Viennese Secession, through his portraits and landscapes.

Atelier des Lumières

Located between Bastille and Nation, in a former foundry in the eleventh arrondissement of Paris, the Atelier des Lumières will hold monumental immersive exhibitions. Using 140 video projectors and a spatialised sound system, the highly unique multimedia equipment will cover a total surface area of 3,300 m2, extending from the floors to the ceilings and over walls up to ten metres high.
The Atelier des Lumières will include two areas for visitors: la halle and le studio. In la halle, a continuous cycle of digital exhibitions will be projected, alternating between a long programme, devoted to the great figures in the history of art, and a short, more contemporary programme. For the opening, the long programme will focus on Gustav Klimt. Visitors will be immersed in the work of this artist, who was indissociable from the Vienna Secession. The short programme will focus on another artist: Friedensreich Hundertwasse. In le studio, the visitors will discover the work of experienced or emerging artists.
