Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience – Step into a Digital Art Exhibition
Set in an expansive space of more than 17,000 square feet, the digital art experience is made up of separate galleries that provide an enveloping 360-degree, large scale view of Van Gogh’s works.
One of the core features of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is a central projection area where visitors can simply sit and wonder at the works of the post-Impressionism Dutch painter.
A Day in the Life of the Artist & More Experiences
The exhibition will also feature a one-of-a-kind Virtual Reality (VR) experience that provides visitors with a look into Van Gogh’s world. This multisensory VR experience, which is exclusive to Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, allows visitors to explore the unforgettable ten-minute journey “A Day in the Life of the Artist,”. It also presents the inspiration behind some of Van Gogh’s most beloved works such as Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
In the drawing studio, visitors’ work becomes a part of the show. Visitors can make their own unique creations, or recreating an art piece from the exhibition. In addition, they can also scan it onsite and transform it into a larger-than-life digital representation which they can use as their exclusive photo backdrop.
Unique Segments at the Singapore edition of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
The Singapore edition of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience also feature two unique segments.
For the first time, there will be a showcase of traditional Japanese art style woodblock stamps and prints. The Japanese art of woodblocking had gained prominence in France in the 1880s and Van Gogh had viewed the style and this was reflected in his own artworks like “Geisha”.
The second unique feature of the Singapore edition of Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is that there will be an authentic matcha tea ceremony on display. Visitors to the exhibition will be able to enjoy a taste of fresh matcha right.
After visiting the exhibition, visitors can also enjoy a whole suite of add-on experiences, including a thematic cafe that offers Janice Wong’s range of pastries and sweet treats,
plus exclusive exhibition merchandise.
Other activities programmes lined up include signature yoga classes to art jamming sessions and more.
