360-degree, large-scale digital art experience will offer visitors a total immersion in Van Gogh … reports Asian Lite News
This Autumn, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, a 360 degree digital art experience, will debut in London. The exhibit invites visitors to step into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings by using floor-to-ceiling digital projections, made possible by state-of-the-art video mapping technology.
As well as the two-story tall central projection area, the exhibition also includes a one-of-a-kind VR experience in a separate gallery. This multi-sensory experience guides the viewer through a ten-minute journey on “a day in the life of the artist”, providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of his most beloved works including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
A drawing studio and additional galleries that explore the life, works and techniques of Van Gogh, create a truly immersive experience that provides its audience with a new, intimate understanding of the post-impressionist genius and his work.
The work of entertainment producer Exhibition Hub together with Fever, the leading entertainment discovery platform, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, first premiered in a cathedral in Naples, Italy, in November of 2017. Since then, Exhibition Hub has presented the experience in Brussels, Beijing and Tel Aviv, and it is currently operating exhibits in Austria and Belgium. Following its success in Europe, the highly anticipated experience will also launch in multiple cities across the US this year, including New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Boston & Houston. The first to open is the experience in Atlanta this May, where the event sold out over 100,000 tickets in the first week after release.
