Van Gogh comes ‘Alive’ in Manila

October 13, 2019

Since the announcement that “Van Gogh Alive” is heading to Manila, the city has been rightfully excited to see what’s been dubbed as the world’s most-visited multi-sensory exhibit.

(Above and below photos) ‘Van Gogh Alive’ promises to expand the meaning of art as it deviates from the norm and merges classical with contemporary, in a way that will surely delight viewers of all ages.

Created by Grande Exhibitions, Van Gogh Alive fetes works of Vincent Van Gogh, the Dutch post-impressionist painter whose art is appreciated around the globe.

Van Gogh Alive promises to expand the meaning of art as it deviates from the norm and merge classical with contemporary, in a way that will surely delight people of all ages.

From the moment spectators enter, a powerful and vibrant symphony of light, color and sound will compel them to leave the world behind and immerse in an unforgettable experience. Van Gogh’s masterpieces come to life and visitors can embrace the sensation of walking right into his paintings — an experience that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.

Grande Exhibitions’ state-of-the-art Sensory immersive gallery combines with a tailored exhibition space to allow projection of enormous crystal-clear images. Set to an evocative classical score, a display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms every surface — walls, columns, ceilings, and even floors.

Just like in The Mind Museum, visitors of various ages will forge their own paths and find their own meaning as they wander through the galleries, exploring hidden nooks, this time viewing Van Gogh’s masterpieces from new angles and discovering unique perspectives.

Visitors have the chance to examine Van Gogh’s sources of inspiration via photographs and video displayed alongside his works. But for many, the greatest pleasure lies in simply standing still, indulging the senses as waves of sights and sounds, intense and beautiful, wash over them.

Van Gogh Alive opens to the public on October 26 at One Bonifacio High Street. The exhibit will run until December 8. For tickets, visit our official website vangoghalive.ph.
