18-09-2020
The weekend is somewhat inviting to indoor activities (the forecast is that some bad weather is on the horizon) following all the health measures in place amid the ongoing pandemic. Connect and discover some of the most amazing exhibitions on display at the Invicta. 

Porto Customs inaugurated quite the vibrant set of exhibitions, as visitors are presented with the digital immersive experience of the artwork by two renowned world class painters - Klimt and Monet.

The exhibit features holograms and 360 degree view projections of paintings by these iconic painters of the first two decades of the 20th century: Monet, the founder of French Impressionist painting and Gustav Klimt, the Austrian symbolist painter and one of the most prominent members of the Vienna Secession movement.
The exhibit will be on show at Porto Customs from 21st August until 15th November. Entrance is free to children up to five years old.

What Porto Customs offers is a digitally-oriented art exhibition, and also a "new recreational teaching method", as explained in a statement by atelier OCUBO, the entity in charge of the project.

The "Impressive Monet" bestows the opportunity to almost "enter" the painter's canvas, namely his most iconic perceptions before nature, especially as applied to landscape painting.

The segment on "Brilliant Klimt" offers the view of the quintessential painting "The Kiss" as the starting point to explore Klimt's artwork.

The Immersivus Gallery is located at the Porto Customs Underground area, and it is open from Wednesday to Sunday, between 10.30am and 8pm.

Children up to five years old will be admitted free of charge, and ticket prices range from 5 to 9 euros.
All pandemic preventive measures are in place, in compliance with the rules issued by the Health Authorities.
