ABOUT IMMERSIVE VAN GOGH
Immersive Van Gogh was seen by 800,000 visitors during its New York City premiere in the summer of 2021, before closing to make way for previously scheduled events at Pier 36. More than four million tickets have been sold to Immersive Van Gogh since its North American premiere in July 2020, making it one of the most popular attractions in North America.
Hailed as a “Must-See” by Architectural Digest and “Gorgeous” by Time Out, Immersive Van Gogh was widely embraced in New York City and quickly emerged as a sweeping art trend. ArtNet News declared it a “blockbuster digital experience that has taken the art world by storm!”
Immersive Van Gogh invites audiences to “step inside” the iconic works of Van Gogh, evoking his highly emotional and chaotic inner consciousness through art, light, music, movement and imagination. The gallery space offers patrons more than 500,000 cubic feet of animated projections. Immersive Van Gogh was designed by Creator Massimiliano Siccardi, with original, mood-setting music, both original and curated, by Italian multimedia Composer Luca Longobardi, who provided a score that combines experimental electronic music with pure, ethereal and melodic orchestral pieces. Vittorio Guidotti is the Art Director. Renowned Creative Director David Korins (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen) has created a custom design to fit the architecture of the exhibition’s New York home. The producing team includes Corey Ross, Svetlana Dvoretsky, Maria Shclover and Irina Shabshis.
