Go See Gogh
This is no ordinary art exhibition.
A blockbuster hit in more than 60 cities worldwide, it's now Adelaide's turn to enjoy Van Gogh Alive the Experience as part of the Illuminate Adelaide Festival. Van Gogh Alive is the most visited multi-sensory experience in the world with more than 6 million people attending the shows.
Van Gogh Alive Experience
Vincent Van Gogh's most outstanding works come alive in this walk-through kaleidoscope tribute to one of the world's most recognised and famous artists.
Van Gogh's artworks are known all over the world and people flock to galleries to see them. But this art show is no ordinary art exhibition. Don't expect to be queuing to view a painting from a respectable distance behind a rope fence. In this exhibition, you'll be interacting with the art in ways that will surprise you. Being surrounded by the works will bring Van Gogh's bold ideas and intensity to life.
From the moment you step inside the Grand Pavilion, you'll be surrounded by a blend of light, colour, sound and smell in what the show's Australian creators, Grande Experiences, describe as an 'unforgettable multi-sensory experience'.
In this spectacular and elaborate digital experience, you'll be surrounded by a series of giant screens synchronized with an orchestral soundtrack and 3000 of Van Gogh's images created between 1880 and 1890 in full and close-up views.
The Grand Pavilion, in a world-first, is a specially designed and constructed 25000 square foot gallery. For those of you who know O'Connell Street, you'll find the Pavilion at the old LeCornu's site.
The Pavilion features a visually stunning wrap-around floral exterior and spectacular immersive foyers, including an exact recreation of Van Gogh's famous painting of the Café Terrace at Night. Designed by Australian designer Anna Cordingley, the Grand Pavilion also houses two immersive areas: The Sunflower Infinity Room and a walk-through immersive recreation of arguably Van Gogh's most famous painting, Starry Night.
