Asaf Avidan at Casa da Musica
Five years after his last solo performance, Asaf Avidan returns to the stage with the Ichnology Solo Tour, a tour that includes a stop at Casa da Música on Monday.
Before The Reckoning, which became the best-selling independent album in Israel, the singer and songwriter from Jerusalem had already achieved significant milestones, including opening for musicians like Bob Dylan, Robert Plant, Ben Harper, and Lou Reed. Anagnorisis (2020), his latest album, topped the sales charts in 14 European countries.
Impressive Monet & Brilliant Klimt
The exhibition at Immersivus Gallery brings the famous paintings of Monet and Klimt to life. These renowned artworks have “broken free” from their frames, with specially created effects and animations that immerse visitors in an innovative artistic experience.
Covering a vast 2,000 square meters of 360-degree projection space, this exhibition allows you to step into the imagination of the artists. You’ll be surrounded by the impressionist movement of Claude Monet and the intimate, romantic art of Gustav Klimt, featuring his iconic painting “The Kiss.”
