One of the perks of my summer job is the ability to tag along on visits to the latest Parisian exhibits each summer. Yesterday, I had the immense pleasure of visiting L’Atelier des lumières, where three immersive sound and light shows are currently presented. The most fabulous one, in my opinion was the Gustav Klimt show, marking the centenary of the Austrian painter’s passing and also considering his artistic heirs, such as Egon Schiele. The shows are projected on the floors and walls of a former foundry in the 11th Arrondissement. You are bathed in light and music as one image is absorbed into the next. The Klimt show is on until November 11, 2018 and I highly recommend that you make it a priority if you will be in Paris before it closes.
L’Atelier des lumières (lat-el-e-ay day loom-e-air) means “workshop of light,” and I will definitely be adding it to my list of places to return to when I am in Paris.
