COVID-19 Update

From the Producers of Van Gogh Immersive:

Just a couple of months ago we announced that the exciting world premiere of Immersive Van Gogh from the creators of Paris’ Atelier Des Lumières is coming to Toronto. Our excitement must have been infectious with over 20,000 of you had purchased tickets in the first few weeks!

Sadly, excitement isn’t the only thing that’s infectious… And like so many other events these days, COVID-19 has messed with our plans.

To deal with the challenges COVID-19 presents for Immersive Van Gogh, we have extended our dates of the exhibition through September 30th. This will allow us to move our guests to dates when it is safer to come and also permits us to lower the gallery capacity and enable our guests to practice social distancing — we are allowing for 75 square feet per attendee.

The creative team has been capitalizing on the extra time to enhance what was already an incredible show. Your support in coming to the exhibit is key to keeping the dozens of artists working on this project employed. We are determined to keep culture in Toronto alive and promise that Immersive Van Gogh will be the most amazing thing to do when we can all leave our homes. When COVID is Gone… it will be time to Gogh!

Should things not stabilize by your new ticket’s date, we will continue to re-date and extend the exhibition run as necessary to make certain you have the chance to see this fabulous show. We continue to monitor the situation daily.

These are not easy times, and we truly appreciate your patience and support. We wish for you and your family to stay safe and healthy!

Monumental Exhibition of Van Gogh
to Make World Premiere in Toronto

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.
