Hall des Lumières’ Gustav Klimt Exhibition - Your Questions Answered

Hall des Lumières’ Gustav Klimt Exhibition - Your Questions Answered

Over the past several years, immersive art exhibitions have become all the rage. From traveling immersion tours featuring artists like Monet and even Vincent Van Gogh to several digital pop-up experiences happening all over NYC, the way we experience art has changed dramatically.

The days of cramming in shoulder-to-shoulder to catch a glimpse of a far-smaller-than-you-think Mona Lisa are over. Digital, immersive experiences provide a level of accessibility that’s second to none. With larger spaces comes larger scale – work covers every inch of the room – floors, ceilings, skylights, even you.

And there’s no exhibition space more magnificent than Hall des Lumières with its current headline exhibition featuring one of the world’s most iconic artists, Gustav Klimt. The inaugural exhibition entitled Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion, is a multi-sensory celebration of his most iconic work – The Kiss, Adele, and more. In case that isn’t reason enough to check out the massive space, they also feature other exhibits from different artists along with your ticket.

Traveling exhibitions sacrifice quality as they require constant adjustment to various venues. Since they’re always changing, they’re inconsistent – i.e. different exhibitions in different cities provide a different experience (not always for the best).

However, Hall des Lumières is a permanent immersive exhibition at a location that was chosen explicitly for this experience. Each projected image is designed to fit the precise specifications of the building’s interior – meaning every nook, corner, and column becomes Klimt’s canvas.

With unparalleled quality and scale, Hall des Lumières is a must-see for those in the New York metro area.

Here’s everything you need to know about this breathtaking experience:

Is this just one more art pop-up?

No, this is the inaugural immersive exhibition at the largest digital art experience in the U.S. Unlike the Vincent Van Gogh or Monet exhibitions, Hall des Lumières has turned the restored Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank into its home in Lower Manhattan, NYC, allowing for a beautiful, state-of-the-art experience.

Are other artists featured in the exhibition?

While the primary exhibition is Klimt – about 60 minutes – Hall des Lumières is followed by shorter exhibitions that highlight a number of contemporary artists including Friedensreich Hundertwasser, Nohlab, and François Vautier.

Are tickets expensive?

Adult admission starts at $30, with fees bringing the total to $41.36. There are discounts for students, seniors, and those who’ve served – or currently serve – in the military.

Pro Tip: if you’re looking for a discounted rate, keep an eye out for their off-peak hours!

Where is Hall des Lumières and how do I get there?

Hall des Lumières is located in a stunning building in Lower Manhattan at 49 Chambers Street New York, NY 10007. It’s super easy to get to, accessible by nearly every train (A, C, J, Z, 1, 2, 3, R, W, 4, 5, 6), bus, ferry, PATH, or walking!

Head to Google Maps to finalize your journey.

Is Hall des Lumières accessible to everyone?

Yes, Hall des Lumières is fully accessible to visitors with reduced mobility. Parents are encouraged to bring their children so they can literally walk into Gold In Motion.

While Hall des Lumières isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion exhibition is not permanent! We recommend grabbing your tickets now and keeping an eye out for which exhibitions are next to come Hall des Lumières provides the ultimate experience for adults and kids alike.
