Van Gogh Alive Multi-Sensory Experience Heads to Brisbane in October

The works of Vincent Van Gogh are some of the world’s most iconic masterpieces, and despite the tragic story around his life, millions upon millions have been inspired by his creations. While it is not necessarily possible to travel to the Van Gogh Museum in the Netherlands to gaze upon his original works, Grande Experiences are headed to Brisbane in October 2021 to deliver a multi-sensory experience based on his works.

Titled Van Gogh Alive, this is pitched as a “large-scale, multi-sensory experience”, which to date has been experienced by over 7 million people across 70 cities – with Brisbane to join that number. According to Grand Experiences, “Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as visitors find themselves interacting with art in ways they never imagined”.

From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance that has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life, giving visitors the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational. Adults and children delight in the super-scale show, viewing artworks from new angles and discovering unique perspectives. Visitors also have the chance to examine Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration via photographs and video displayed alongside his works. Don’t worry about the kids getting bored – they’ll love it as much as you do!

Van Gogh Alive will be presented at Northshore, Brisbane from Friday 29 October 2021 for a strictly limited time. Tickets will go on-sale from this Friday online, and be priced from $35.00

We can’t wait to unveil the extraordinarily beautiful Grand Pavilion which we have designed specifically to showcase Van Gogh Alive. The Grand Pavilion is not only home to the Sensory 4TM Gallery which houses Van Gogh Alive, but it features four additional immersive spaces including the Instagrammable Van Gogh’s bedroom, Van Gogh’s Café Terrace at Night, where you can sit and enjoy a glass of Taittinger champagne, the amazing Infinity Sunflower Room, where you can stand in a never ending field of sunflowers. The spectacular Starry Night Room allows visitors to walk on air through Van Gogh’s famous painting ‘Starry Night’. Trust us, Brisbane hasn’t seen anything like ‘Van Gogh Alive at The Grand Pavilion’; this is undoubtedly the world’s most popular multi-sensory and mind-blowing art experience, and we are thrilled that Brisbane will be the second leg of its two-year multi-city tour.

Van Gogh Alive is an exceptionally innovative multi-sensory experience that took 18 months and countless iterations over the past decade to create. It was the very first of its kind in the world. Van Gogh Alive has really redefined the way many people around the world engage with art and culture and it has brought tremendous pleasure to audiences old and young, experienced and inexperienced in art and culture.
