Van Gogh Alive Comes to St. Petersburg’s Dali Museum
The Met might be hosting its 150th anniversary show and there’s yet another exhibition on Monet at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, but for pure escapism it’s hard to top the upcoming exhibition at St. Petersburg’s Dali Museum. Entitled “Van Gogh Alive” and on view from November 21st to April 11th, the multimedia experience features more than 3,000 van Gogh images, including the iconic Starry Night and Sunflowers, presented as large-scale, high-definition projections on the walls and floors. The images are set to a classical score pumped through cinema-quality surround sound as viewers get the sensation of being immersed in the works. The installation is powered by SENSORY4™, a unique system developed by Grande Experiences of Melbourne, Australia. The Dalí Museum is the first American venue to host the exhibition before traveling to the Newfields Museum in Indianapolis next June.
