Immersive Van Gogh debuted in Chicago Thursday. This is the U.S. debut for the show from the creators of a similar show at Atelier des Lumieres in Paris, seen by more than 2 million visitors.
Featuring 500,000 cubic feet of projections animating Vincent van Gogh’s art, visitors see moving images revealing brush strokes, color and detail. The exhibition includes Les Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885), Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889) and much more. It truly is immersive and amazing. It is dazzling with sight and sound.
From 70 projectors, Van Gogh’s art is brought to life through music, light and animation. “Immersive Van Gogh is a new way of encountering art,” stated coproducer Corey Ross.
As with another show currently in Toronto, the exhibition is custom-designed for the Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago within the historic Germania Club. Built in 1889 on the near north side of Chicago, the Germania Club is on the National Register of Historic Places and also has a Chicago Landmark designation. Prominently featured in the Grand Ballroom is the world’s largest non-religious stained-glass portrait.
Lighthouse ArtSpace is a joint project of Lighthouse Immersive USA and Maestro Immersive Art, Inc. The space is dedicated to immersive art presentations.
Immersive Van Gogh Chicago already sold out its initial run and has been extended into September.
