Van Gogh Alive-The Experience is a digital multi-sensory exhibition, capturing the inner world of Vincent Van Gogh and his artworks. Hundreds of projectors screen onto large walls, ceilings and floors large scale projections of the magnificent and colorful artworks of the Dutch artist. The paintings surround you and you feel like you are literally inside Van Gogh’s paintings. The use of light, color and music are a feast for all the senses.

“The projections are intertwined with a symphony of sound and extravagant light shows that immerse the viewer in an all encompassing 360 degree spectacle.” Time Out Magazine

Van Gogh Museum & the Dallas Museum of Art have joined forces to host for the first time the beautiful olive groves series of Vincent Van Gogh. These paintings were painted by the Dutch artist during his one year stay in the asylum at Saint-Remy-de-Provence, when he was emotionally very unwell. He painted the olive grove series from June to December 1889. These paintings are being reunited for the first time and presented to the public to see. This must see exhibition will start in Amsterdam and will then move to Dallas. For more details, press here.

Exhibitions in 2020 in the United States showing Vincent Van Gogh Artworks

Van Gogh & America

Museum: Detroit Institute of Arts, USA
Dates: October 2, 2022 through January 22, 2023

Americans were pretty slow to recognize the genius of Vincent Van Gogh. It was only in 1923 that a few of his paintings were exhibited in the United States for the very first time. Strangely it took Irving Stone’s 1934 historical fiction novel “Lust for Life” and the 1956 movie based on this novel to expose mainstream Americans to Van Gogh’s artworks.

Detroit Institute of the Arts deserves to host this exhibition as it was the first US museum to purchase a Van Gogh painting. In this exhibition, you will view over 60 Vincent Van Gogh artworks, including mostly paintings but also some drawings.
