During his lifetime as a prolific artist, Van Gogh received very little attention. Amongst other things, he has been described as a visionary, a madman, and a genius. Now, a immersive Van Gogh, mixed media exhibition will be visiting Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The exhibition will be held at the National Theatre, Abu Dhabi from the 14th Jan - 26th Feb and Dubai Design District from the 11th March - 23rd April.
Rather than looking at a static painting from afar, the exhibition curates a modern way to experience Van Gogh's art. The style of the exhibition particularly suits the vibrant nature of Van Gogh paintings. Digital images of his paintings are projected on the floors, walls, and ceilings of the gallery. An emotive classical sound piece accompanies the work.
The exhibition will be an opportunity for young artists to experience Fine Art in a new and engaging way.
For those of you who would like to learn more about Van Gogh before the exhibition, you can find a plethora of information on the Van Gogh Museum website.
Or for a sneak peek of Van Gogh's work before "Van Gogh Alive - The Experience" arrives, you can consider popping into the new Louvre Abu Dhabi to see one of his self-portraits currently on loan from the Musee d'Orsay, France.
