Yes, this isn’t the only Van Gogh exhibition in the world, but here are a few reasons why the Singapore edition is a must-visit.
Van Gogh + Japan?
When you think of Van Gogh, you might picture beautiful fields of flowers or hum a few lines from the song ‘Vincent.’ But did you know Van Gogh was inspired by Japanese art?
The Singapore edition of “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” will debut two unique segments. For the first time ever, the exhibition will feature traditional Japanese woodblock stamps and prints. Van Gogh was fascinated by the Japonisme movement, which strongly influenced his artwork style and led to masterpieces like ‘Geisha.’
Also, in a tribute to Japanese culture, there will be an authentic matcha tea ceremony for guests to enjoy. So, get ready to immerse yourself in the fusion of Van Gogh’s art and Japanese tradition!
Heal your soul with Van Gogh
The exhibition boasts a mesmerizing central projection area where visitors can sit and absorb the wonders of Van Gogh’s art. Lose yourself in the beauty of his work and enjoy the moment.
Spanning over 17,000 square feet, the immersive experience features more than 300 of Van Gogh’s sketches, drawings, and paintings, projected on floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall screens. Step into Van Gogh’s world and let his art heal your soul.
Visitors can also dive into Van Gogh’s world through a unique virtual reality (VR) experience called “A Day in the Life of the Artist.” Plus, there’s a drawing studio where guests can create their own art and scan it to create a digital backdrop.
Too beautiful to eat, too delicious to resist
