Van Gogh Alive, the immersive, multi-sensory experience that has welcomed 8.5 million visitors in 80 cities around the world, is coming to Brighton this spring. An interactive event that uses high-definition projections and various immersive installations to showcase the life and work of the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh, the exhibition’s Brighton run will include never seen before additions.

Opening in spring 2023 for a limited period of three months, the show’s exact location in Brighton will be announced on January 25 when tickets go on sale.

Life-sized installations, including Van Gogh’s Bedroom of Arles painting and an immersive mirrored sunflower room, make this a truly unique, engaging experience. State-of-the-art SENSORY4™ technology will project a kaleidoscope of 3,000 images on life-animating floors and walls of iconic works like Sunflowers. All visuals are set to a surround sound classical score, combining sound and visuals for a cinematic experience suitable for all ages.
