Immersive Van Gogh

Description

From the originators of the Parisian Atelier des Lumières exhibition that has been seen by more than two million visitors worldwide and has inspired the global trendsetting phenomenon of immersive digital art experiences, comes an all-new visually striking achievement that invites audiences to step inside Vincent van Gogh’s most incredible works of art. The world premiere of IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH, produced by Lighthouse Immersive who brought the sold-out exhibition The Art of Banksy to Toronto in 2018, 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. The exhibition will take over the vacant five-storey building at 1 Yonge Street, and feature a curated selection of images from van Gogh’s 2000+ lifetime catalogue of masterpieces including the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885) to the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889). His paintings will be presented as how the artist first saw the scenes they are based on: active life and moving landscapes turned into sharp yet sweeping brushstrokes. 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.
