Have you ever longingly gazed at a picture of Gaudí’s famous Sagrada Família, wishing you were in Barcelona walking through the architectural wonder? Well, that dream is about to come true when Gaudi, Kandinsky & Klee: The Immersive Experience comes to Dubai on September 23 at Infinity des Lumières in The Dubai Mall. Cutting-edge technology will turn three different artists’ world-famous creations into hyper-realistic projections that you can walk through; you’ll find yourself in the middle of Gaudí’s magnificent modernist buildings, submerged in the explosive colours of Kandinsky’s famous Several Circles painting and watch Klee’s trippy cubist paintings dance to the rhythm of music.
You’ll want to ensure your phones are fully charged as you saunter through Gaudí, Kandinsky & Klee: The Immersive Experience. This immersive digital art experience has all the makings of an Instagram paradise – right from the ceiling to the floor, every square inch of space around you will be bathed with a kaleidoscope of colours and pictures. It’s like stepping inside the canvas and becoming a part of the painting. And that’s not all! For the first time ever, three 15-minute digital experiences have been condensed into one single 45-minute exhibition, which is why Gaudí, Kandinsky & Klee: The Immersive Experience is a must-visit. This is an epic larger-than-life art exhibition that takes static art outside formal environments of stuffy museums and turns art into a fun, dynamic and interactive experience that everyone can relate to, not just art lovers.
When you enter the doors of Infinity Des Lumieres, the largest digital art venue in the GGC, you’ll find yourself surrounded by legendary Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí’s spectacular buildings that are now UNESCO World Heritage sites. The vivid mosaics of Parc Güell, Casa Batlló’s asymmetrical windows, the breathtaking gothic towers of Sagrada Família and the wavy façade of Casa Milà will fall into place around you on giant screens, like pieces of a puzzle. Set to the music of American pianist George Gershwin, this multi-sensory experience will leave you speechless.
And that’s just one leg of Gaudí, Kandinsky & Klee: The Immersive Experience Experience called ‘Gaudí, The Architect of the Imaginary.’ You will also wander through two other 15-minute exhibitions titled ‘Wassily Kandinsky: The Odyssey of Abstraction’ and ‘Paul Klee: painting music’, respectively. The former will engulf you in the memories, inspirations and colours that shaped Russian abstract artist Kandinsky’s dizzyingly stunning masterpiece such as Composition VIII – the original painting is currently sat in the Guggenheim in New York but this digital recreation will bring it to your doorstep right here in Dubai.
German abstract painter Paul Klee was also a musician, and the latter exhibition is an homage to the musical elements in Klee’s art. Visualise and feel the rhythm of his geometric shapes as they soar and fall in tune to classical melodies such as the opera concerto Mozart’s Magic Flute. Imagine musical fountains, but replace the water with light and illustrations. The idea is to convey the interconnectedness of all art forms. Mark your calendars to be the first to get tickets for this sensory delight that is a tribute to the human imagination and creativity.
