immersive art experience van gogh alive comes to brighton this may
Ok, we’ll admit it, we’re pretty damn excited about this one. Van Gogh Alive, the incredible 360-degree immersive art exhibition that’s sold out runs from London to Edinburgh is (finally) coming to Brighton this spring/summer!
Equally excitingly, Brighton Dome has announced that the popular immersive show will be the opening event following the completed refurbishment of its Grade I and II-listed Corn Exchange and Studio Theatre.
More multi-sensory experience than traditional art exhibition, Van Gogh Alive uses high-definition virtual projection technology and cinema-quality surround sound (and even aromas of Provence) to take visitors on a detailed kaleidoscopic journey, bringing the legendary artist’s mesmerising world to life.
With more than 3,000 images transforming each surface, the level of detail you get to appreciate is truly amazing. It’s no wonder over 8.5 million people have visited it on its many stops around the world. Think life-sized installations, such as the artist’s Bedroom of Arles painting and a fully immersive mirrored sunflower room featuring hundreds of the sunny blooms.
Even more excitingly, the exhibition’s Brighton run will include some never-before-seen additions in its showcase of the life and work of the Dutch artist. Brighton visitors will be the first to experience a brand-new Starry Night installation and there will also be a dedicated artist studio that invites people to replicate Van Gogh’s artistic style.
Tickets are now on sale for the spring/summer event and if you want to take advantage of the early-bird price you can register here (available until 31st January) for the link and get excited as the exhibition is hanging around for an exclusive three-month run.
