You Can Walk Through Van Gogh's Starry Night At This Immersive Exhibit Coming To Montreal

Van Gogh's works come to life in this ephemeral space.
Vincent Van Gogh Exhibit Montreal Includes Giant Projections Of The Artist's Work

Immersive exhibitions are popular in Montreal. Quebecers who rushed to Feux Follets, a completely new light experience, and even HideSeek, an exhibition that brought us back to childhood, are sure to flock to the next attraction coming soon to the city. First presented in Europe, the exhibition Imagine Van Gogh is landing in Montreal this winter. It's designed to give you the impression of travelling within the famous artist's paintings.

Indeed, as the photos from Europeans who had the chance to see the exhibition before us demonstrate, the paces makes Van Gogh's paintings multidimensional through projections on towering walls as well as the floor. And for real, who has never gotten lost looking at Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night? This time, it will be truer than ever.

The show begins on December 5,* and the ticket presale is expected to begin soon. Visitors can stroll through the rooms animated with giant images from Vincent Van Gogh's paintings: "The details, the touches, the material, the colours take [participants] to an extraordinary experience where all the senses are awake."

The exhibit includes more than 200 works, including the classic Starry Night, Sunflowers, Iris, and Cranberry Wheat Field along with a soundtrack that will enhance the experience.

This is an exposition to stimulate your imagination and stir emotions.

We can also see a lot of photos on social networks of French people who have decided to sit in the middle of the room to contemplate everything and let themselves travel in the canvases. It's just beautiful to see.
