After hitting headlines in the capital, Van Gogh Alive makes its way to Dubai’s creative hub, d3. Until April 23rd, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience Van Gogh’s artistry and truly venture into his world. Grande Exhibitions and 6IX Degrees Entertainment present Van Gogh Alive – The Experience, a multi-sensory exhibition event to entertain the whole family – open from Sunday, 11th March.

Bedroom in Arles showcases a replica of Van Gogh’s surroundings where much of his work was produced, and the city is invited into his space for an up close and personal look. Stretching the definition of an ‘exhibition’, it simulates senses through audio and visual technology.

From start to finish, visitors are surrounded by a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, color and sound that compels them to leave the world behind and immerse themselves in what has been called an ‘unforgettable’ multi-sensory experience. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life as visitors experience the sensation of walking right into his paintings a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.

Taking place in d3 from March 11th to April 23rd, the exhibition uses state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ multimedia technology to project enormous crystal-clear images. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms every surface – walls, columns, ceilings and even floors. At such a scale, the vibrant colors and vivid details of Van Gogh’s work are truly breathtaking.
