Van Gogh Alive – The Experience

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together” – Vincent Van Gogh

Did you know that Vincent Van Gogh only sold one painting during his short and troubled lifetime? Head to Van Gogh Alive – The Experience to learn more about the work of the famous Dutch painter.

 

Van Gogh Alive is a special art exhibition in a very unique way – with over 3,000 images displayed on the walls, the ceiling, and even the floor with high definition projectors in the heart of Dubai Design District. It has been touring the world already and will be stopping in the desert city for six weeks, till April 23rd.

Some of the paintings are displayed in full, while others are broken into sections, or magnified on a huge scale. Plus you will enjoy a moving and specially-curated music soundtrack as you immerse yourself in Van Gogh’s most breathtaking works, such as “The Starry Night“, “Irises“, “Blossoming Almond“, “Bedroom in Arles” and “Wheatfield with Crows“.

To celebrate the genius of the Dutch painter, the Dubai Art Season and to help the communities in need, Samovar Carpets has teamed up with Dubai Cares to set up a silent auction of a unique reproduction the Starry Night – a hand-knotted carpet developed by multi-award winning designer Erbil Tezcan. The auction will be open till April 23rd and all proceeds will go towards Dubai Cares’ education programs in developing countries.

Grab a blanket, sit down, relax and enjoy an unforgettable multi-sensory experience!
