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
