Vincent Van Gogh, the star of the exhibition, was a dutch post-impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful, and his suicide at 37 came after years of mental illness and poverty.
This exhibition has an immersive and sensory experience by scenarios painted by one of the great names of Post-Impressionism. This is an experience created by the Van Gogh Museum that brings an “innovative concept of edutainment developed with the mission to preserve and spread the painter’s work, taking it across borders, to different places and audiences.”
The exhibition takes visitors ‘strolls’ through places that have marked the painter’s life – such as Café Tambourin or his room – and challenges them to test their artistic abilities. Divided into eight theme stations – Reception; Wheatfield; Iris Flower Maze; Almond Tree Square; Moon bath; Starry Night Symphony; Painted Photo; and output – the show tells the life and work of Vincent van Gogh.
There are also several projections, films and photographs accompanying the visitor in his immersion in the life of Van Gogh. “Allowing each visitor to deepen their knowledge, there are several interactive points that challenge the visitor to test their artistic skills by applying the techniques developed by the painter”.
Meet Vincent Van Gogh will be seen at the Mass Court from 28 February. Tickets are now on sale through Ticketline. In these early days of advance purchase, the tickets are discounted and start at € 4.50.
