El Oro de Klimt (The Gold of Klimt), an exhibition by the Austrian artist that has already visited Madrid and Seville, has now arrived in Malaga.
The show is being held until 19 April in the space in Muelle Uno next to the Cube, in Malaga port, which until recently hosted a Lego exhibition.
The exhibit consists of an audiovisual display on a giant screen so that visitors can experience a new generation of immersive art with the fusion of painting, music and technology.
The project aims to encourage the audience to get to know Gustav Klimt, the most important Austrian artist from the end of the nineteenth century to the beginning of the twentieth, through modern technology. This will be done, say the organisers, by “strolling among the landscapes and portraits, analysing each detail”, as visitors are transported back to the time when the artist lived and worked.
The exhibition has been organised by the Nomad Arte company who were responsible for the successful Van Gogh Alive exhibition last year.
Tickets can be bought online and cost 11 euros Monday to Friday and 13 euros at weekends. Children between four and fifteen years old, students, unemployed, over 65s and disabled pay 9 euros Monday to Friday and 11 euros at weekends. Children under four go free.
