From the originators of the Parisian Atelier des Lumières exhibition that has been seen by more than two million visitors worldwide and has inspired the global trendsetting phenomenon of immersive digital art experiences, comes an all-new visually striking achievement that invites audiences to step inside Vincent van Gogh’s most incredible works of art. The world premiere of IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH, produced by Show One Productions and Starvox Exhibit, evokes the highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness of one of the greatest artists of all time through an all-encompassing experience of art, light, sound, movement and imagination.
IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH opens on July 1, 2020 within the rarely seen historic space that previously housed the Toronto Star’s printing presses at 1 Yonge Street
IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH is designed by creative director and Italian film producer Massimiliano Siccardi (artist in residence at the Carrières de Lumières where he authored the mise-en-scène of numerous immersive shows); with original music by multimedia composer Luca Longobardi, who is renowned for bringing together classical and contemporary genres.
The exhibition will feature a curated selection of images from van Gogh’s 2000+ lifetime catalogue of masterpieces including the Mangeurs de pommes de terre (The Potato Eaters, 1885) to the Nuit étoilée (Starry Night, 1889), Les Tournesols (Sunflowers, 1888), and La Chambre à coucher (The Bedroom, 1889). His paintings will be presented as how the artist first saw the scenes they are based on: active life and moving landscapes turned into sharp yet sweeping brushstrokes.
The exhibition will take over the vacant five-storey building at 1 Yonge Street, adjacent to the Toronto Star newsroom. The 600,000 cu.ft. warehouse was the former printing presses for Canada’s largest circulated newspaper; and closed in 1992 when the Toronto Star moved its production to Vaughan.
