After wowing punters on Wellington’s waterfront in August 2020, the wildly popular Van Gogh Alive exhibition is returning to Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch in 2021.
Make no mistake – this is no ordinary art exhibition. Van Gogh’s art has been enjoyed around the world for over a century, but you’ve never experienced Farmhouse in Provence, Wheatfield with Crows or The Starry Night quite like this. Setting aside traditions of walking silently through galleries and observing art in quiet contemplation, Van Gogh Alive is a multi-sensory experience designed to give the feeling of walking right into the Dutch master’s paintings. Visitors are surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and even fragrance, indulging the senses and bringing visual masterpieces to life as never before.
