You’ve seen art before, but have you ever stepped into it? Well let us paint you the picture of what Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience has in store for you. The iconic art of one of the most renowned artists in history, Van Gogh, is being brought to life in an immersive exhibition that has toured the globe.
This is all thanks to cutting-edge projection mapping as well as an inspired approach to displaying the art in a 360-degree digital show. Topping off the trio of technology involved in the unique exhibition is everyone’s favourite, virtual reality. The exhibition has been around since May last year and has had an extension until 17th July 2023 due to its popularity. So thankfully, there’s still plenty of time to check it out if you haven’t already checked out the spectacular multisensory experience. If that wasn’t all, to celebrate, you can also get 25% off tickets with code VGDUBLIN25 for a limited time.
What can you expect to see inside Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience?
Strolling in through the doors of this exhibition is like stumbling into a painted wonderland, where, instead of cheshire cats and mad hatters, it’s the beautiful creations of Van Gogh that materialise in front of your eyes: boats bobbing on rippled water illuminated by orb-like stars, almond blossoms swaying in a gentle breeze and crows flying across dappled blue skies. There’s no magic at play here, just incredible digital technology that injects life and movement into 19th-century pieces.
The multi-sensory exhibit – which you’ll find in Artane, just a 20-minute ride from the city centre – also includes a hyper-realistic VR experience, giving guests the chance to slip on a headset and follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh in ‘A Day in the Life of an Artist in Arles, France’. Wander along twisting cobblestone streets and through butter-yellow wheat fields on a ten-minute virtual exploration; discovering the colourful realms of paintings such as Starry Night over the Rhone River and Vincent’s bedroom at Arles.
Be sure to bring the kids along too. Not only will they get to learn all about the post-impressionist painter through engaging interactives and impressive 3D re-creations, but any aspiring young artists will also have the opportunity to pick up some crayons and create their own masterpieces, which we’re sure will rival the works of Van Gogh himself.
Don’t just take our word for it. Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience has already won hearts in London, Naples, Brussels, Beijing and many more cities around the world, sending over 2 million people on a mesmerising multisensory journey.
