Van Gogh Alive - The Experience

Created by Grande Exhibitions, Digital Nights Wellington – Van Gogh Alive is a multi-sensory immersive experience presented for the first time outdoors under the starry night sky on Wellington waterfront. 

Vincent van Gogh’s masterpieces will come alive in a unique exhibition experience of more than 3,000 images projected onto shipping containers at an enormous 8 metre-high scale and synchronised to a powerful classical score. Considered one of the world’s most famous and influential artists, Van Gogh was prolific during the late 1800s, producing over 2,000 works in little over a decade including 860 oil paintings of landscapes, portraits and still life scenes.

Famous artworks including The Starry Night and Sunflowers are presented in hyper-fine detail at a monumental scale, allowing you to see every brush stroke. Immersed in a vibrant symphony of light, colour and sound, you’ll feel like you’re walking right into Van Gogh’s timeless masterpieces. It’s an experience for the whole family with kids finding their own meaning amongst the breath-taking imagery.
