Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience has extended its Bristol runPosted on: 07 Sep 2022
The 360-degree, massive digital art experience will extend its residency at Bristol’s newest cultural hub, Propyard, until the autumn due to popular demand.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience was originally scheduled to run until Saturday 3 September but will now run until Sunday 2 October.
Successfully launched in April this year, tickets are on sale currently for the immensely popular digital art experience, with adult ticket prices starting at just £16.
Tickets can be found here.
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience transports its visitors to the transcendent universe of Van Gogh to explore the legendary artist’s life, his work, and his private life like never before through the dynamic 360-degree digital projections, VR experience as well as its accompanying beautifully atmospheric multisensory show.
The light and sound experience takes visitors through a short journey on “a day in the life of the artist”, providing a chance to discover the inspiration behind some of his most loved pieces such as Vincent’s Bedroom at Arles, and Starry Night Over The Rhone River.
After a five-month residency at Propyard on Feeder Road - where the exhibition has proved vastly popular - the venue’s team are thrilled with the extension of the exhibition. Propyard’s co-founder, Sam Watts has said of the extended run:
“We’ve had such positive feedback from visitors and watching them as they come out of the experience is such a wonderful thing. The 360-degree projection room is a definite favourite for most people, and it can be pretty powerful when you’re in there, so we’re glad to be able to give people another chance to make it down if they haven’t already.”
It has been five months since the experience first appeared at the artistic hub located in the heart of St. Phillips and Bristol artist Farrah Fortnam was commissioned to create a Van Gogh-inspired mural trail leading to the exhibition.
Those who have not experienced this stunning exhibition now have an extra month to head down to Propyard and gain an intimate understanding of the legendary post-expressionist’s work.
Tickets begin at £16 for adults and £13 for children as well as a 30% discount for seniors, students and NHS employees and can be purchased here.
