The popular Imagine Van Gogh exhibit is finally arriving in Vancouver this month, after stops across Europe and Canada.
Imagine Van Gogh promises to inspire visitors to reconnect with Vincent Van Gogh’s famous artwork in a new and creative way.
The exhibition works as follows: Visitors will wander amongst giant projections of the Dutch artist’s paintings, including some of his most famous works. This immersive experience will allow guests to get up close and personal with every brushstroke, detail, and colour in his paintings.
Over 200 of Van Gogh’s works have been incorporated into the exhibit. Expect to be immersed in everything from Van Gogh’s sunny landscapes and night scenes, to his portraits and still life. The featured paintings include those completed between 1888 and 1890 in Provence, Arles, and Auvers-sur-Oise, for which he is most well known. Such paintings include Starry Night and Sunflowers.
Imagine Van Gogh was brought to life by Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, who utilized multi-projection and immersive audio techniques to make their vision a reality. Unlike your typical art gallery exhibition, the art featured at Imagine Van Gogh is projected in 90,000,000 pixels onto 600,000 cubic feet of space. There are over 60,000 frames of video in total, allowing the visitor to feel truly immersed in some of the most famous paintings in the entire world.
This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition will be held at the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre. It opens March 19 and will call Vancouver home for three whole months, closing June 11. Admission prices range from $34.99 to $99.99.
As with all events taking place right now, COVID-19 safety measures must be followed at all times, which includes mask wearing and social distancing.
