You’ve seen the selfies. It’s a perfect date night or family trip where you will explore through this walk-through exhibition. You will be stunned as the great “masterpieces, now freed from frames, come alive, appear and disappear, flow across multi-surfaces, the minutia of details titillating our heightened senses. Through his own words set to a symphonic score, we may come to a new appreciation of this tortured artist’s stunning work,” said Van Gogh Birmingham.

How does this immersive experience happen? According to Van Gogh Birmingham, “Beyond Van Gogh uses cutting-edge projection technology to create an engaging journey into the world of Van Gogh. Using his dreams, his thoughts, and his words to drive the experience as a narrative, we move along projection swathed walls wrapped in light, colour, and shapes that swirl, dance and refocus into flowers, cafes and landscapes.”

Is it worth it? According to reviews, the short answer is yes. The combination of technology and art is unexplainable, and you should experience it first-hand. Click here to get more details from Van Gogh Birmingham.
