Opening exhibitions

3 permanent exhibitions in 2 areas

The Atalier des Lumières will include two areas for visitors: La Halle (1,500 m2) and Le Studio (160 m2).


a continuous cycle of digital exhibitions will be projected, alternating between a long programme, devoted to the great figures in the history of art, and a short, more contemporary programme.

For the opening, the long programme will focus on Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele. For around thirty minutes, visitors will be immersed in the work of these artists, who were indissociable from the Vienna Secession of the nineteenth century. ‘Thanks to the virtualisation of works of art, we will enable many visitors who have never had the opportunity to visit the Secession Palace in Vienna to behold the iconic figures in Klimt’s frescoes’, explain Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, the directors responsible for projecting these works over all of the surfaces in the Atalier des Lumières.

The short programme will focus on another artist who symbolised Viennese creativity: Friedensreich Hundertwasser (1928–2000), the inheritor of the Secession. In an explosion of colour, the Atalier des Lumières will establish a link between the various eras and provide a visual and musical journey through the creative works of the past and the present.


the visitors will discover the work of experienced or emerging artists. As an area devoted to contemporary art, it will give carte blanche to digital artists who are capable of creating unique visual worlds. Snacks will be available from the bar at the far end of the studio.
