Yes, THE Vincent Van Gogh: The guy who did The Starry Night that hangs in MoMA and obsessively painted thick, impressionist versions of sunflowers all his life. The one who cut off his ear. That Van Gogh will have his very own dedicated exhibit in Taguig City, Manila this month through December.
Those curious over what drove the controversial, mad and yet also brilliant, Van Gogh can visit a multi-sensory walk based on his life and work at “Van Gogh Alive: The Experience” starting Oct. 26 until Dec. 8 at One Bonifacio High Street in Taguig City.
“Van Gogh Alive: The Experience” is part of a global city exhibition that engages its audience using large-scale installations and high-definition multi-screen environments with surround sound.
TLDR: It’s not boring, and you’ll learn something.
Melbourne-based Grande Exhibitions, the creator and promoter of Van Gogh Alive has traveled to over 130 cities across six continents, and reached audiences of over 15 million people.
They have created, designed and produced several large scale art shows and exhibitions including a feature at the Museo Leonardo Da Vinci, in Rome.
Here’s a sneak peek of what the show will look like, from an earlier exhibit in Sweden:
