As we start to look forward to the New Year, can we hope for a chance to move beyond the pandemic? Opening in Vancouver March 19 2021, Imagine Van Gogh, is an original, immersive exhibition from Europe featuring more than 200 of the Dutch artist’s paintings.
Hosted at Vancouver Convention Centre, with the safety of guests, employees and the community as the highest priority, Imagine Van Gogh will open in accordance with the public health guidelines in British Columbia.
Created by French Artistic Directors Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, known for their immersive exhibits Cathédrale d’Images in Les Baux-de-Provence. Imagine Van Gogh first amazed audiences in France, with its grandiose and immersive concept of Total Image; the viewer is literally transported on a journey to the heart of the artist’s work. The exhibit brings Van Gogh’s canvases to life in a vivid, spectacular way: the audience will literally enter the artist’s world of dreams.
“Original canvasses are expanded and fragmented, then projected into unusual shapes to emphasize the mesmerizing exaggerations and distortions of Van Gogh’s work. Visitors experience their energy, emotion, and beauty like never before,” says Annabelle Mauger.
During its first Canadian stops in Montreal and Quebec City, the unique Imagine Van Gogh exhibition received widespread praise. Before closing in March, Montreal received close to 200,000 visitors and thereafter 75,000 in Quebec City this past summer – during a pandemic!
The presentation is currently underway in Winnipeg until the end of December due to high demand despite COVID-19 restrictions.
