If you think you’ve seen the works of Van Gogh already, think again. That is unless you’ve already been to Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience – but even then, if you went to it early on you might be due another visit. Last summer, the exhibition received some pretty big additions and changes so there’s even more for you to discover as the experience has been extended once again, until late January. The mesmerising exhibition allows you to literally step into Van Gogh’s iconic post-impressionist works, with stunning detail and vibrant colours completely surrounding you. On top of this, it uses cutting-edge technology that transports you right into the heart of Van Gogh’s world.
This magical event from renowned European “edu-tainment” company Exhibition Hub utilises a unique combination of several dozen projectors, 1000m² screens, plus a separate high-tech VR adventure, to create a mind-bending 360° digital art experience. Their cutting-edge video-mapping process is only used by a few companies around the world. And tickets to the exhibit have been flying fast since it opened its doors, so you’ll want to be quick to make your booking!
Illuminating a beautiful historical venue in east London, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will take you on a stunning ride through the incredible works of one of history’s greatest artists. And since it’s largely digital, it’s almost entirely hands-free, although putting on the VR headset hands-free does sound like a bit of a challenge. Bonus points for it also being something fun all ages can enjoy.
After successful exhibits around the world, the spectacular exhibitionhas really found a home in London since its September 2021 opening. The multisensory journey through these famous bodies of work is an entirely new way of experiencing art, bringing every stunning detail to life like never before. Get a taste of the magic below:
Using technology to recreate animated displays of these masterpieces you’ll be immersed directly in the paintings themselves, looking up at The Starry Night and watching the stars dance around the room in Van Gogh’s iconic style.
