Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is an new immersive experience that's making its UK debut this summer at York St Mary’s on Castlegate. It enables visitors to step inside the paintings, world and mind of the 19th century impressionist painter.
The multimedia experience tells Van Gogh’s life and his creations through projections, recreations and interactive elements of his artworks around the historic exhibition space. Over 200 of his works are featured, but rather than remaining static, the huge projections of paintings come alive with digital animation and an emotive soundtrack, to create a world where the visitor sees through the eyes of Vincent Van Gogh for a 35-minute, fully immersive, 360-degree experience.
Following successful runs in Brussels and Naples, York was chosen as the first venue in the UK as a destination which embraces both its heritage and digital prowess, recognised as a UNESCO City of Media Arts.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience will open on 5 July 2019 and is scheduled to run through until 5 January 2020.
