VAN GOGH: The immersive experience announces Belfast location
After huge success across multiple European cities and very good reception in the United States, Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will debut at Carlisle Memorial Church, Belfast, this November.
Planning for Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience began in 2016, and it first premiered in a cathedral in Naples, Italy, in November of 2018. Since then, Exhibition Hub has presented the experience in multiple European cities and across the United States. The experience saw over 3.5 million visitors in 2022.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is a 360-degree digital art experience, brought to life by Exhibition Hub and Fever. It invites visitors to step into more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings by using floor-to-ceiling large-scale digital projections in an expansive, two-story tall (or taller) central projection area.
Named a Must See Attraction by CNN, the exhibition also includes hands-on drawing activities and a one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality (VR) experience in separate galleries within the expansive 10,000 square foot experience.
In the drawing studio, guests’ work becomes a part of the show, while the multi-sensory VR experience lets visitors explore the unforgettable ten-minute journey “A Day in the Life of the Artist,” in which the inspiration behind some of van Gogh’s most beloved works are revealed, including Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience strikes a careful balance between immersion and education, creating a new form of Immersive Edutainment. Thanks to this approach, guests are treated to an experience that is rich with dynamic animation and visuals, and equally rich with meaning. The exhibit showcases state-of-the-art video mapping technology, available to only a handful of companies in the world, to create a truly immersive experience that provides its audience with a new, intimate understanding of this post-impressionist genius and his work.
The teams at Exhibition Hub and Fever have partnered to curate this digital production, bringing decades of experience in the sector.
From 22nd September, visitors can join the waiting list here and be amongst the first to receive information on how to purchase tickets, which will be released on 29th September.
