We are thrilled to announce that the first film from Season 11 of Exhibition on Screen will be Klimt & The Kiss – in cinemas from 30th October.
The Kiss by Gustav Klimt is one of the most recognised and reproduced paintings in the world. It is perhaps the most popular poster on student dorm walls from Beijing to Boston. Klimt & The Kissexplores the scandalous life and the rich tapestry of influences behind one of the world’s favourite paintings.
Delving into the details of real gold, elaborate decoration, rich symbolism and simmering erotica, a close study of the painting takes us to the remarkable turn of the century Vienna when a new world was battling with the old.
