Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is a must-see not just for art aficionados but for visitors of all walks of life and ages. Presenting the celebrated artist’s works in a way that is accessible to the general public, and reshaping the traditional idea of classic art galleries and museums, the exhibition grants visitors a unique closeness and understanding of Van Gogh’s works through an exquisite blend of art, storytelling and technology.
This 360-degree digital art experience is housed within various individualistic galleries in the expansive space of over 17,000 square feet. The exhibition invites visitors to step into more than 300 of Vincent Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings, immersing one in his world and life works by using floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall large scale digital projections. One of the core highlights of this exhibition is an expansive central projection area where the digital projections are the most prominent, creating a mesmerising space where visitors can sit and absorb the wonders of one of the most well-loved Dutch influential artists all around them at every turn.
