With the help of 60,600 frames of video, 90,000,000 pixels, and 500,000+ cubic feet of projections, Immersive Van Gogh merges state-of-the-art technology, theatrical storytelling, and world-class animation to create an experience that has enthralled audiences in North America.
From the Houston Chronical: The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit was created by Massimiliano Siccardi, a 30-year pioneer in immersive content. His work has mesmerized over 2 million people in Paris, and was recently showcased in the Netflix series Emily in Paris. A visionary in digital and video mapping, Siccardi takes audiences on an emotional and cathartic journey that explores Van Gogh’s art and life in a stream-of-consciousness narrative. From bright bursts of colors to moments of moodier introspection and everything in between, Immersive Van Gogh Houston is a beautiful homage to this great artist and the legacy he left behind. Immersive Van Gogh is the Van Gogh show that is selling out in Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York
What Is It?
Immersive Van Gogh brings 40 of Van Gogh’s paintings to life from over 400 photos licensed from the world’s most prestigious museums. The photos have been turned to life in a 360° video.
The run time of one experience at Immersive Van Gogh Houston is about 35 minutes. It runs on a continuous loop, and guests can stay for multiple viewings. We entered about 3/4 of the way through the looped film and then stayed till the whole thing ran through again. It was interesting enough to sit through multiple times.
The Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit is a bit pricey for what it was but I am still glad we went. They required masks and you had to sit on the floor unless you were lucky enough to snag a bench. It truly was stunning and I felt it told a beautiful story. We did not purchase VIP tickets and glad we didn’t. From what we saw, that group did not seem to receive any additional perks but did get a free poster and cushion to sit on.
We got our tickets from VetTix so only had to pay a small handling fee.
If you are a huge fan of Van Gogh or only know if Starry Night you will enjoy the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit. If it comes to your town we’d recommend checking it out. It beats going to a boring museum to see still paintings on a wall. These paintings come to life in the Immersive experience.
