    'Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion' exhibit dazzles in New York [VIDEO]

    Austrian symbolist artist Gustav Klimt’s masterpieces come to life in an immersive exhibit in New York, inaugurating a new museum that merges technology, art and music.


    The exhibit called “Gustav Klimt: Gold in Motion,” which opens on Wednesday enfolds visitors in 30-foot high images of his works in the landmarked Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank building, now the 33,000-square-foot Hall des Lumières, located in Manhattan’s Civic Center neighbourhood in New York City.


    Klimt’s most famous work, “The Kiss,” was painted in 1907-1908 during the height of his golden period and seemingly drips off the centre’s 30-foot marble walls.
