Earlier this month, we announced that a multi-sensory Van Gogh exhibition is arriving in London later this year. But it would now appear that that statement is double true, as another Van Gogh experience has joined the party, and is coming to the capital in the summer. (What’s that old saying about buses? You wait ages for one to show, and then two come along at once. Buses… immersive Van Gogh exhibitions… it’s all the same.)
Yes, I suppose you’re right, this could get quite confusing. But we’re here to give you the low-down of the two, and ultimately help you decide which one you’d like to get tickets for.
First up you’ve got Van Gogh Alive, arriving in the summer. This exhibition, created by Grande Exhibitions, has delighted visitors all over the world, and it’s finally appearing in London’s gorgeous Kensington Gardens in July. There’ll be a stunning sunflower room, a 3D recreation of Van Gogh’s famous paintings of his bedroom, and so much more — all “set to an evocative classical score”. Tickets aren’t on sale just yet, but if this sounds like your cup of tea you should set your alarms for 9am on March 24 and head over to their website.
The second immersive Van Gogh experience, aptly called Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, is hitting the capital in October. Here you’ll be able to step inside the artist’s famous masterpieces, with a 360-degree digital spectacle that will totally transform the space. The exhibition, brought to life by Exhibition Hub and leading entertainment discovery platform Fever, first premiered in a Neapolitan cathedral back in 2018, and has since visited the likes of Brussels, Beijing and Tel Aviv, to much acclaim. It’s currently operating in Austria and Belgium, and its recent launch in the States was met with a great reception. Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience offers an entirely new way of experiencing art, bringing every stunning detail to life like never before. Tickets are on sale now, and you can get your hands on them here.
