Immersive Van Gogh Exhibition
July 1 @ 10:00 am - September 30 @ 7:00 pm$34.99
The highly anticipated world premiere of Immersive van Gogh is set to open its doors July 1, 2020 to present an all-new visually striking achievement inspired by the global trendsetting phenomenon of immersive digital art experiences. Designed by the creators of the blockbuster show at Atelier des Lumières seen by over 2 million visitors in Paris, the Toronto exhibition evokes the highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness of one of the greatest artists of all time through an all-encompassing experience of art, light, sound, movement and imagination.
Be immersed in 600,000 cubic feet of stunning projection animating the master’s oeuvre and illuminating the mind of the genius. Wander through giant projections that highlight brushstroke, detail, and colours as you have never seen. Visitors will be immersed in Van Gogh’s works — from his sunny landscapes and night scenes, to his portraits and still life paintings. The installation includes the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889).
The exhibition is housed in the historic space of the Toronto Star’s former printing presses at 1 Yonge Street — transforming the industrial into the magical. Experience the organic landscapes of Van Gogh’s imagination, and ride the rollercoaster of Van Gogh’s brilliance and madness. It is astonishing in scale, breathtakingly imaginative, and a completely new look at van Gogh’s masterpieces. Designed by creative director and Italian film producer Massimiliano Siccardi; with original music by multimedia composer Luca Longobardi, IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH is an experience you won’t want to miss.
