The Dalí Museum Offers An Immersive Art Experience
Now Through June 13, 2021.
Tantalize the senses with one of the most influential Western artists, Vincent Van Gogh in the latest special exhibition at the Dalí Museum, Van Gogh Alive. Featuring more than 3,000 Van Gogh images at enormous scale, synchronized to a powerful classical score, this immersive, multi-sensory art experience harnesses technology and music to open a new window into the painter’s artistic genius.
“The Dalí Museum is at the forefront of technology, embracing new methods to engage guests in unconventional ways,” said Hank Hine, executive director of The Dalí. “Just as we have used technology to bring both Dalí and his works to life, Van Gogh Alive offers a unique installation that expands how we are able to experience art.”
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who is considered one of the most influential figures in the history of Western art. The son of a Protestant pastor, Van Gogh made an unsuccessful attempt at theological studies before turning to art at the age of 27. Completely self-taught, Van Gogh was one of the most prolific artists of his time. In 10 years, he produced more than 2,000 works but only sold one work during his lifetime. His suicide in 1890 brought him into the public imagination as a misunderstood genius who continues to inspire new generations.
