Tickets are officially on sale for the world premiere of the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibition, which is opening in Toronto this spring.
As part of the exhibition, Torontonians will have the opportunity to step into the mind and artistic genius of Vincent Van Gogh at a new digital art show that's set to take over a historic building in the city.
On May 1, the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibition will open in the historic space that once housed the Toronto Star's printing presses at 1 Yonge Street until it was relocated to Vaughan in 1992. The exhibit will transform the industrial setting into an all-new, all-encompassing sensory experience of art, light, sound, movement, and imagination.
The experience comes from the masterminds behind the "blockbuster" exhibit Atelier des Lumières in Paris that attracted millions of visitors, with Massimiliano Siccardi designing the new exhibit and Luca Longobardi creating the soundtrack.
Here in Toronto, visitors will have the chance to be immersed in 600,000 cubic feet of mesmerizing projections that animate the painter's brushstrokes, details, and colours of some of his most iconic works from his sunny landscapes and night scenes to his portraits and still life.
This includes his work the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885) to the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889).
Tickets for the exhibition start at $34.99 for a timed admission, which means you have guaranteed access to the exhibit at a specific hour on a specific day. However, if you would prefer to visit the exhibit at any time, tickets are $39.99. The 'anytime admission' guarantees you the flexibility to attend on any day and time within the month of purchase during exhibition hours.
