Did you know that Van Gogh Alive, the most visited multi-sensory experience in the world, is finally coming to Brisbane? Having been shown to 65 cities worldwide, this not-to-be-missed art exhibit is set to excite art enthusiasts in the city as it arrives in Hamilton next month.
This exhibit, which will be popping up at Northshore Hamilton from 29 October to 28 November 2011, will change your preconceived notions about visiting art museums and art galleries, that they are all built for silent observation. Van Gogh’s works have been displayed and enjoyed worldwide for over a century – but never in an immersive way like this.
With Van Gogh Alive, expect to be amazed as it presents a vibrant symphony of light, colour and sound, combined and amplified to create what visitors are calling “an unforgettable multi-sensory experience.”
Van Gogh’s works, including an exact recreation of his famous painting, the “Café Terrace at Night,” will be housed in The Grand Pavilion, a specially designed and constructed 25,000 square foot immersive gallery.
Designed by Australian designer Anna Cordingley, the Grand Pavilion also houses two immersive areas: The Sunflower Infinity Room and a walk-through immersive recreation of arguably Van Gogh’s most famous painting, “Starry Night.”
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased via Ticketek. The show is presented by Grande Experiences, Andrew Kay, BBC Studios, and Fane, in partnership with Lexus.
