Van Gogh Alive — The Experience

Messe Basel
Ongoing Event
Fri., 07 October until Sun., 19 February

Vincent Willem van Gogh’s works have been displayed and enjoyed around the world for over a century. Now, visitors have the unique opportunity to experience his artistry at a multi-sensory exhibition event. At “Van Gogh Alive,” large-scale projections will allow visitors to step into the middle of the paintings of this unique artist and be immersed in a gripping combination of light, color, and music. Forget everything you think you know and open yourself to a whole new way of interacting with art. From the moment you enter, a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, color, and sound compels you to leave the world behind and immerse yourself in what visitors are calling an “unforgettable” multi-sensory experience.
Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life as you walk right into the paintings—an experience that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining, and educational. Grande Exhibitions’ state-of-the-art SENSORY4™ immersive gallery combines with a tailored exhibition space to allow the projection of enormous crystal-clear images. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms every surface—walls, columns, ceilings, and even floors. With over 1,200 m2 of projection area, the Basel immersive hall is the largest in Europe. Discover the techniques of his painting in an explosion of vivid details, thanks to which the exhibition "Van Gogh Alive" has become the most viewed in the world, with over 7 million visitors.
