Parisian Museum Allows Visitors To Walk Inside Famous Paintings

Art-lovers will soon be able to walk “inside” famous paintings thanks to a Parisian museum that will digitally project and expand the art on studio walls.

Atelier des Lumières, or Studio of Lights in English, is a new museum that allows visitors to immerse themselves in larger-than-life paintings from famous Austrian artists Gustav Klimt and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the Daily Mail reported.

The museum is set to open April 13 and is managed by Culturespaces, according to the museum’s official press release on its website.

The museum uses projections from 120 videos to create the huge paintings from the prominent Viennese painters. The surface area of the museum is 10,827 square feet. The paintings cover the floor, walls, and ceilings. The museum also features a curated soundtrack to accompany the unique exhibits.

“The role of an art center is to decompartmentalize, and that is why digital technology is so important in twenty-first century exhibitions,” said Bruno Monneir, the president of Culturespaces.
