You may have seen pictures of this incredible exhibit in other cities across Canada, but now Imagine Van Gogh is finally coming to Edmonton! The Edmonton EXPO Centre will be the temporary home for this extraordinary, immersive experience from July 6 to September 5, 2021.
A Unique Cultural Experience
In this exhibition, visitors of all ages discover a new way of reconnecting with the work of this great master. The very concept of Imagine Van Gogh is grandiose: visitors wander amongst giant projections of the artist’s paintings, swept away by every brushstroke, detail, painting medium and colour. Your senses will become fully awakened as you view these Van Gogh works of such spectacular beauty. Visitors will discover more than 200 of Van Gogh’s paintings, including his most famous works, painted between 1888 and 1890 in Provence, Arles and Auvers-sur-Oise.
This exhibition is the work of Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, who collaborated on the creation of immersive shows at Cathédrale d’images in Les Baux-de-Provence, using the concept of “Image Totale”conceived by Albert Plécy. For Imagine Van Gogh, they employed advanced techniques of multi-projection and immersive audio to add emotional depth to each image, allowing us to live and feel the creative energy of the esteemed artist.
In the event of a temporary exhibit closure due to public health orders, all tickets scheduled during the closure will be automatically rescheduled for when the exhibit reopens.
